Happy reading.

Namu of the Waterfall

Namu of the Waterfall is an old Tamrin love song. It is first mentioned in Akrad’s Children though Rasel refers to the underlying legend in both Rasel’s Song and Mannok’s Betrayal.

Namuswaterfall6x450

Namu dances to the song

of the rainbow spray

silver voice mingling with

double moonlit ray.

Drifting through fine mist

bright child of sylvan folk

in water-gated cave she plays.

 

An echo haunting the waters’ spray

Her voice mingles in double moons’ bright ray.

Mingling in double moons’ bright ray.

 

 

Stark shouts disturb

the shining dark

booted feet, flailing arms,

brutal blows are struck

lucid water churnes

as lost prince is stripped by thieves

and left to die in heartless lark.

 

At last the villains are gone

Namu weeps to see the bloodied dawn

Swimming out to pool’s edge

she looks upon Solik’s prone form

crystal waters sullied

from his seeping wounds,

her heart is torn.
