Shorah B'Shemtee,

As promised here is the story poem from Story Night in Kirel.
(Dedicated to Annabelle, merci, ma chere!)

And here are the questions to solve: (Answers at bottom)

1. In what age was Love found by the shore?

2. What is the correct translation of the D'ni Words and Phrases?

3. Last, but not least, Dear reader, Please help me to identify the land in the last verse.
If you can, then maybe I will be able to be with her again.

Sadly, my search is over, I have finally found her.



THE GIFT
Section 1
[Reveal] Spoiler:
I don’t remember when it happened
Love found walking by the shore
But it is explained just a little
When she walks through my door
Time seems to hesitate and linger
Before our evening words are said
The room fills with quilted memories
Of the sun filled days we’ve had

The first time I saw her
She was standing on a bridge
And I was just walking by
High upon a mud brown ridge
Seeking solace from the world
She asked if I had finished this age
Not knowing what she meant
Said sure, is it time to turn the page?
Laughing, she jumped over to me
Stood for a while, pointed at my book
Start at the beginning, you really will see
and one day you may understand
And began to teach what should be

She said to do all the ages alone
And find my way through the puzzles
To turn, push and move every stone
Then seek others to help solve
Ages that need more than one

She found me when I had finished
And motioned for me to walk
Now it is time we begin together
To explore the beauty of this place
She came close to me and whispered
Now look into my face
And tell me what you see clearly
For time is growing late
Breathless, and unable to speak
Her eyes held so many colors
With scenes of beauty and grace
Oh, Please No More
Or my heart will simply break

She smiled sadly and said enough for now
Tomorrow will bring a new life for you
And you will begin to understand
Why you are here and what you need to do

The golden morning brought her to my side
With a gift of wonders unknown
She began to instruct me on what it meant
And the role that I must now take on
You must wear this here in all time spent
And follow all the guiding rules
You must be the Seeker now
Find the worthy and not the fools
Use these gifts wisely, be kind and patient
With those you choose, instruct them well
Be ready to help ‘til they find their content

She taught me how soar and fly
To count all those in an given age
And see the rooms with a different eye
Then how to find a long lost page
The rest she said is for you to grow
And find the knowledge in the books
You are ready now, it is time for us to go


Section 2
[Reveal] Spoiler:
We traveled for countless days
And danced among the stars
We flew around the solemn Arch
And watched the city lights
Viewed the stained glass window bays
On a mountain above the lake
Attended the sundown in Payiferen
An orange streak of the suns last rays
Held the blue green twilight above the ground
As the stars winked on and off
We strolled through the purple haze
Among Kadish’s lean tall trees
And watched the snow fall lightly
through orange tinted leaves
Swam beneath the ice in Dereno
And played tag with all the fishes
The beauty and splendor of it all
Left no apprehension in our wishes


They watchers came and told us
The day had been announced
There would no longer be a cavern
The day of renewal ran out


She called to me without a sound
And we strolled our simple shore
We spoke not of things to come
Or of what had been before
We walked close together for a while
Then she stopped to look to around
Came close to me and gave a smile
And began her farewell song

I must go and prepare for the new
You cannot help this time my friend
If you seek and think you have found me
Say these words and I will understand

“Shall we not speak of things long past?”

And I will respond softly to you

“Only in our hearts did they ever exist”

Then you will know I found a way through

I roamed the city seeking……calling
But she did not answer my words
Echoes of my footsteps
The only sounds I heard
Rushing I pushed all the books
And redid every age and garden
And on the last day of renewal
Walked through the empty cavern
And stood atop the Long Great Stair
Kerath’s Arch seemed to say
She is gone and you are alone
She will not be here today

Suddenly, a Watcher was at my side
Do not wait here it is late my friend
Run, go find where a King has died
She left a note and there you should attend
The trembling of my being
made me key everything twice
An eternity passed before seeing
The Vault door before my eyes
I ran to the highest place
In the nook we first touched hands


Last Section
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Found the note in the ancient tongue
Relehm
Rekortee
Hoorhem rekor oshahnin ratstee oglahn
Kehnehn Gor Kogloeht

And under the script in her own fine hand

You must find a way, my Love
If I come, you will find me walking here
Seek to understand the words
Then we can be together again

And under the note was a small scarlet book
With only a single passage that read

A Shell Sleep to Journey In
A body rained with darkness
Igloo sun drowning in midnight blue
Clear marbles frozen with starry light
Slide fully into your slumbers view
And sit beside idle dreams tonight
From far above the gathering clouds
Glide bombs leaking dawn streams
Filling the sunrise with colors bound
Washing up exploded on the shore
Only to go home in someone else’s eyes
A Shell Sleep to Journey in
A body rained with darkness

Beautiful...the heart of a romantic. Some of the riddle I could not get...but the flow of the poetry is magnificent.
