Dwarven Lament

November 21, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

From time to time, I've been known to play Dungeons and Dragons, and also to write.  I've decided to share some of the things I've created on my blog for others to enjoy and use (please credit me with a link if you do).

Recently, I wrote a lament song for a D&D game wherein I play a Bard, on the subject of a Dwarven city destroyed by Dragons.  It's a short one, almost a song-fragment, as it's about the ancient history of a part of an ongoing campaign.

 

So I give you, A Dwarven Lament Song:

"A kingdom built, with quartz halls gilt,
Upon the peaks so high, so high.
The pathways shone with precious stone,
Upon the peaks so high.
Deep we delved, for sacred wealth,
Below the peaks so high.
Until the day the dragons came,
Descending from on high.
Their fi'ry breath brought stout-men death,
Upon the peaks so high.
Gold like rivers, burning diggers,
Upon the peaks so high.
Our kingdom's crash, our bodies ash,
Upon the peaks so high.
Upon the peaks so high, so high."
