Etymology of Hurrah

Winds of sylph carry the autumn leaves Memories cut deep; sharper than Mistilteinn Dancing in the air, slowly the world tree weaves A fate by which the gods could have never seen Demise Despair The sunrises Hot air Unbearable the heat Dries the lands The crops of fields become ash […]

Short Breath
