Knotted Flower

Knotted Flower

by Andrew Borck | @bfriendlygiant

 

In the middle of the Eyrewood, a rare flower grows.

A Lookout needs it,

A Daughter protects it,

A Thornwatch would only see it as part of a knot.

 

Deep in the Eyrewood, a flower is picked.

A Lookout ties it to a tree,

A Daughter is angered,

A Thornwatch is summoned.

 

Under a bare, lonely tree a man is leaning under the knot.

A Lookout stands guard,

A Daughter comes at him from the West,

A Thornwatch comes from the East.

 

In front of the tree, an ebb-infected bear charges.

A Lookout holds out his dagger, and closes his eyes.

A Daughter grabs the bear with vines,

A Thornwatch strikes the bear down.

 

Deep in the Eyrewood, a flower is replanted.

A Lookout is shown the way home,

A Daughter smiles,

A Thornwatch fulfills a knot.

In the middle of the Eyrewood, a rare flower grows.
