	The Troth of Bards
     The bards of old held to troth:
     to love, and honor; land and tribe:
     the wisdom learning, teaching ways,
     poetic grace: knowledge and skill,
     tools of the trade, memory turning to lays;
     the bard holds higher the light of the Tribe:
     standard-bearer of the green, red, and black:
     colors of earth, moon, and midnight sun;
     striding the land showing the people
     in song and deed, love and war:
     gathering the quick and the dead
     in Tara's bright Halls, bringing 
     all reason to bear upon seasons:
     gathering all spells: opening the Veil, 
     the worlds between all seeming, knowing:
       breaking forth in tribute: 
         song, harp, and godlight: 
           the elegant truth, unfolding!
