My Apologies

I lack the time to transcribe a Lament portion (it's handwritten), so instead I present you with a short poem detailing the backstory of Link's Awakening. I will try to add a Lament tomorrow.

With Evil gone and peace returned

The Hero took a breath

He’d conquered Ganon and his horde

And sealed him in his death.


He saved the land from certain doom

And took a well-earned rest

But by the Goddess or his heart

He felt the urge to quest.


He bid farewell and built a fleet

To sail on oceans blue.

In search of bright exotic lands

And dangers bold and new.


The sea however isn’t tame

A storm started to brew

He climbed the mast to tie a rope

Debris had smashed in two.


The skies opened with murd’rous roar

A lightning bolt tore free.

The air about him cracked and churned

Link fell into the sea.


Her long red hair cascading down

She strolled along the shore.

She saw a body – stopped and gasped

Link lay upon deaths door.


Young Marin gave a shout and cry

And raised the towns alarm

From Mabe Village came the men

To see what caused her harm.


Her Uncle Tarin saw it first;

The body in the foam.

The Niece and Uncle both allowed

This stranger in their home.

You wrote this? Sorry, I just think you should get a carreer in poetry, this is incredible. How do you get this good?

If you don't have anything useful to contribute here I suggest you don't post.

Practice Met. Practice, and incredibly high standards. I spend eons on each stanza. I hate to have even one sour word.

Met said...

I can tell, do you just write them before hand and then transcribe them or do you do it on the spot?

Reogan said...

I write them by hand or on Word and when the need arises I copy and paste or re-write it on the blog.

LOL

Reogan said...

Yes, it is a rather cumbersome method at times.

Met said...

Seems fine to me.

Reogan said...

But I must write, then transcribe. That's effort I loathe expending.

Met said...

Still it's nice to see something like this up here, very nice poem.

Reogan said...

Yes, certainly a spectacu- Ahem, I mean OH THANK YOU MET! I AM HUMBLE AND GRATEFUL AND JUNK! I AM HONORED BY YOUR PRAISE!

Met said...

I actually ended up using this in a compilation of poems...

Still love it.

I don't. My early work lacked something I have now.
