In Elden time, Elven time, Jephre did come,
A-naming of creatures where'er he did run.

As all was chaotic, and names were unknown,
His gift was a name for each beast, plant, and stone.

Then all knew their places except Men and Mer,
Who plundered and ravaged wherever they were.

"I name you the Earth-Bones," Jephre decreed,
"Lords of the forest, rock, root, and seed.

This heritage nurture, henceforth be its guards,
And designate worthies to act as its wards."

Thereafter did Wyrd Women watch o'er the Green,
From tundra to forest, from peak to ravine,

Reminding all creatures, be it tiger or worm,
Of their name and their nature, their function and form.

Would-be corrupters who'd canker the Green,
Shall face wyress warding wherever they're seen.

So tread woods with caution, respect Jephre's way,
Lest Wyrd women watching abduct you away.
