Kaiser Letifer I
Ballad to the Kaiser
During the coronation ceremony Sagart mac Seaiscant wrote a ballad in honour of Letifer:
On the fiery isles of Yardistan
Came the sound of arms in the north
And Kaiser H'Graa, the heir of Mors
With his band of men went forth
On the rolling hills of Shirekeep
Sat Mog upon the throne
Who Letifer, with his heart afire
Went forth to fight alone
He said "You cost us Amity!
The Holy Land of old!
You allied yourselves with the the thieving elves
And our ancient homes were sold!"
Then he took the Sword of Vengeance
Which was stuck within the stone
There forever to stand unless touched by the hand
Of the rightful heir alone
And he looked at his needy people
And he looked at Kaiser Mog
And he struck him down with his terrible sword
Like the fiery wrath of Gahg!
Thus H'Graa was chosen as Kaiser
In Shireroth's hour of need
May he keep to the Path, lest the gods in their wrath
Lift up another to lead!
