Tombdance!

At one point David Hargrave published something known as the Arduin Chronicles.  Typewritten and chock full of information, it was a handy and useful Arduin reference.   As it is all but lost to time, I'm reposting it here for everyone to enjoy.


Oh!  The Light!  doth shine and glow,
greenly wan and cold as snow.


Yet dark and black the winding way
into the cold rock, there to stay.


Before it was the evil did rise,
its doom its heart, its heart the prize.


Aglow with the power of that which ever is,
the heart ever beats, the power is ever his.


'ware the steel jaws, agrin in timeless glee,
yet the left hand of god points the way for thee.


Gold and jewels abound in fair numbers,
yet near to it all the ultimate doom ever slumbers.


A Tombdance for heroes in quest of their fate
A Death song, a poem, the final gate.


Thus it was written, thus it has been,
for time immemorial beyond human ken.


Note:  Yes, this poem is related to the Quest of the Dark.   How?  Hey, that's for you to figure out!
