For the recent Awards for the Compendium held in New Santhalon, member of the Compendium, Deklitch Hardin had penned a poem about the dream of Master Sage Artimidor Federkiel, namely to see all of Caelereth catalogued in the pages of the Compendium.

In the young Erpheronian's rush to get to Santharia on time, he left the scroll on which the poem was written back in his home in Silven on the shores of Eight Winds Bay. At the conclusion of the awards ceremony, instead of attending the awards after parties, Deklitch headed back north to retrieve the scroll containing the poem, firstly by wain to the port city of Naios, then by ship to Silven.

After collecting the needed scroll, Deklitch made the return voyage through the tunnels that went under the Prominent Mountains with Blessed Sea Elf Traders and then rode with Kuglimz traders to Darooth where he joined a trading vessel that was heading to Milkengrad. From there, Deklitch went by horse and went in stages, resting and changing horses regularly in order to return with the poem in hand as quickly as possible. Returning in time, to catch most of the compendiumists still there, having not yet returned to their individual areas of interest, he unfurled the scroll and read out the verse he had scribed.

The dream that our Sage had
Here is the dream that our Sage had.

Here are the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had.

Here are the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had.

Here are the trolls
That killed the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had.

Here are the orcs
That battled the trolls
That killed the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had.

Here are the dwarves in their caverns deep
That fought the orcs
That battled the trolls
That killed the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had

Here are the humans who travelled from their keep
That visited the dwarves in their caverns deep
That fought the orcs
That battled the trolls
That killed the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had.

Here are the mullogs who made not a peep
That hid from the humans who travelled from their keep
That visited the dwarves in their caverns deep
That fought the orcs
That battled the trolls
That killed the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had

Here are the Brownies whose dracoids started to leap
That flew over the mullogs who didn’t make a peep
That hid from the humans who travelled from their keep
That visited the dwarves in their cavern deep
That fought the orcs
That battled the trolls
That killed the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had

Here are the halflings who are keeping their sheep
That startled the Brownies whose dracoids started to leap
That flew over the mullogs who didn’t make a peep
That hid from the humans who travelled from their keep
That visited the dwarves in their caverns deep
That fought the orcs
That battled the trolls
That killed the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had

Here are the elves growing a new sweet neep
That they gave to the halflings who are keeping their sheep
That startled the Brownies whose dracoids started to leap
That flew over the mullogs who didn’t make a peep
That hid from the humans who travelled from their keep
That visited the dwarves in their caverns deep
That fought the orcs
That battled the trolls
That killed the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had

Here are the developers who are fast asleep
From researching the elves growing a new sweet neep
That they gave to the halflings keeping their sheep
That startled the Brownies whose dracoids started to leap
That flew over the mullogs who didn’t make a peep
That hid from the humans who travelled from their keep
That visited the dwarves in their caverns deep
That fought the orcs
That battled the trolls
That killed the beasts
That ate the plants
That grow in the dream that our Sage had.

And for those wondering, yes, it is based on The House That Jack Built attributed to Mother Goose.

Stanza/verse, I think, although paragraph probably works as well ...

*Burns Deklitch in a fiery inferno for abuse of poetical language*

*Plucks Dek out and dusts him off*

*Apologises*

*Leaves*

*Comes back and remembers to turn off the inferno when not in use*

*Leaves again*

Very nice Dek; personally, I think *insert fancy sounding criticism* and that's about it.

What? I'm far too tired to think. A charming little ditty.

If it is possible for this to go up Artimidor, it would be greatly appreciated ... I think that Parodies would probably be the best place for it ... unless you have a different place in mind. :)
