The Lesser Talisman
by James Gillaspy
Come, fill your cup and listen to my tale
About a world long lost beyond the Veil;
Where three moons rise and rush across the sky,
And lives are ruled by bronze, and horse, and sail.
A world where magic beasts, both great and small,
Bring woe to him on whom their wrath befall;
Though neither sword nor spear can do them harm,
Those bound to talisman are held in thrall.
