Old Writing #6

The little one slept peacefully

in his tiny cradle;

his mother sang to him

a lullabye so sweet,

oh so loving

that the child made not a sound.

His pains faded slowly from his tiny body.

An angel,

bright as the first light of day,

came to him as he laid asleep

in his mothers loving arms

to assure him that none more would ever be.

Tears dropped to her baby’s cheeks

as they took their last breath,

and his mother wished only that he had joy,

for she knew that he would be near, and that he would be safe.

For he would grow tall and strong,

not as a boy,

not as her son,

but as a weeping willow in the valley that she loved,

for that is the way of her world.

About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons, and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a distant planet watched over by four deities: good, evil, elemental, and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the realm whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently three books completed, and the first one can be read online. Book four is currently being written, and a fifth will most likely be in the future.
