Elemental Argument
by
Torvald Torgarson
April, 2001 (AS XXXV)
Written for the Bard of the West
competition at Beltane, AS XXXV

I am the strongest
Upon me they stand
The realms of this world
I hold in my hand
When ever I shake
I can make kingdoms fall
For I am the earth
The strongest of all

I am the strongest
Without me they die
I carry their songs
And their words as they fly
But when I am angered
I cam make their homes fall
For I am the air
The strongest of all

I am the strongest
In peace and in war
As a tool or a weapon
I serve them more
But if the abuse me
I can kill them all
For my name is fire
The strongest of all

I am the strongest
For life I sustain
And each of you others
I hold in disdain
Air, fire, or earth
I can quench, use, or gnaw
I am the water
The strongest of all

I am the strongest
With each I made peace
As a home, weapon, tool
On this world I feast
If I use you wisely
With rev'rnce and awe
Then just a mere man
Can be strongest of all
