Haryette remembered long ago
The night that continues to pain her so
Haunted by a lack to act
She wished she could get that one night back

Grantala Village was dark and still
‘Though not silent due to the newborn’s shrill
Cries of hunger, need for sleep
Haryette needed to slumber deep

“Kind lady!” came a voice through her door
She didn’t know it, she was sure
“I will help you to get some rest
And the same with the child, I will do my best”

Unthinking she allowed the stranger in
“My name is Hor, I can stop this din!”
She blinked, no slept, for an hour had gone
And so had the stranger, and so had her son

And remember, all previous parts are now included in my Storylines Menu, if you’d like to read the epic so far!

    1. I got the idea for this from Norse Mythology, and the Poetic Edda, Chris. Although I wanted it to rhyme, but also have a few awkward lines dotted throughout. Keeping tabs on the links between the characters will become a challenge, I feel, but then, where there are holes there are more opportunities for exploration! 🙂 Hehehe!
      I’m also a few installments ahead of myself as well, which is good for this run!
