As Faeries flutter about
The Spirit of Colleen watches her people live.
She watches them turn their backs on Hate,
Watches them open their arms to Kin-love.
She watches her daughter laughing, happy and in love.
She watches a young Baron rule with justice in his Heart.
He reminds her of her Lost Baron.
Colleen watches children laugh and play.
They think nothing of war,
And she sees a bright future.
A Faerie comes and sits with her.
Fion is his name.
He says he no longer fears these people,
They fight for what is Just,
Not for the Dark.
She sees the Spirit of Yule-
Alive in the Hearts of these,
"Children of Corinthia".
Baron Sebastian and his Lady sat at the head table-
Watching people feast on food,
And Feast on friendship.
He watched children run,
He watched his people lough and smile.
And he knew that the people of Midnight Keep were content.
The fighters told stories of their recent victory.
The craftsman exchange playful insults.
The Bard walked around singing.
Thus he knew they were happy.
He watched them welcome outsiders,
Like they were brethren.
He watched the friendly rivalry between Misted Hill's
people and his own.
And he knew they were generous.
He watched them eat,
Saw how the complimentedt the cooks,
Watched how they helped the servers.
In this way he knew they were grateful.
He gave them their rewards,
He gave them his praise
They presented the Baron with a Standard for their Land.
Because of this he knew he was loved.
