Valgard valiantly sallies forth Alfred with vigor swings his reply Blow upon blow exchanging On the side Megan sees all As these champions strive for the win A western Crown to be won A strong blow sounds out silence descending Valgard the victor A war in the North awaits As the An Tirans invade The Land of the West Our Crowns with courage stand forth A King and a Queen armed for war Inspiring the West to the field Battle upon battle descending Both hold their ground With the West rallied forth Their battles both won Their duty to the West having done Their reign comes to its close.
