Something one might hear in a trade market, perhaps in Aeruillin. (Just got a chant in my head and decided to put it to paper. Been thinking a whole lot on Aeruillin trade.)

Dyes, dyes, magnificent dyes!
Colors so bright, they blind the eyes!
Come, hither, see my fine dye.
All so lovely, they're worth a try.
Greens and blues,
Aeruillin reds too!
Browns, blacks and yellows,
They're good for the fellows.
Purples and greens,
Fit for the queens.
Look, here, see my fine dress,
Dyed it myself from the very best.
The color's right here,
Come, Have a peer.
Dyes, dyes, magnificent dyes!
Colors so bright, they blind the eyes!
Oranges, yellows, browns, blacks and blues,
All very excellent colors to choose.
Regal purples, reds and greens,
Worn by the best of the kings and their queens.
Dyes, dyes, magnificent dyes!
Colors so bright, they blind the eyes!
Strata Orange, Cerubell blue
You find the color that's right for you!
Santharian Purple and lovely Herne Green,
I have every color there is to be seen!
Dyes, dyes, magnificent dyes!
Colors so bright, they blind the eyes!

Just fantastique, the idea and the poem itself! :-)

Oooh, lovely, a trade chant!

Well, now you've inspired me to create a list of the "Street Cries of Santhala".... (grin)

I'd already started on a list of Unique Colours of Sorren and so far I have:

Aeruillin Red
Strata Orange
Cerubell Blue
Herne Green
Mithril (Silver)

Sounds like a paintchip chart or a box of oil pastels, eh?
Anyone got any others to contribute?  This could be fun...

That reminds me of my favorite crayon colors: 'Tickle Me Pink', 'Macaroni and Cheese', and 'Dandelion'. My sister likes 'Jungle Green'

Are there any really purple berries or wines that we have? I think purple really needs a name, and yellow too!

Well, let it develop!
Is purple in Santharia a royal colour as well?Then we should name it Santharian purple??

I like Santharian Purple, and if it's not a royal color I just remembered that Waterberries are purple too:)  but it doesn't quite sound as regal or as nice as Santharian Purple.

I've just taken those color ideas and added to it. Tell me how it sounds now?

BTW... 199 posts!:D   (not that it's anything like Viresse's  2000+ or anything!) :)

Fab!

Except since those colour names are mostly Sarvonian, it might have to be a Sarvonian trade chant, say in Santhala or Marcogg... Aeruillin might not even have the Herne ore, for example...

Up to you, though!


Oh, and I like Santharian Purple - makes it easy for people who want to design royalty and will assume that purple is the colour of the monarchy - some references may have already been made in various Library entries, so let's make it official.

However, let's remember that in Asia, specifically Thailand, a bright yellow is reserved for royalty!   It might be nice to have "Korwyn Yellow" or something similar, based on a golden silk that is only allowed to the nobility....

Gotta go check Koldar's entry and see if we can find something there.

Any trade market is fine, I just think it would be an interesting example of what may be heard there. Although I will soon be making the Phalagor market and it would be an excellent example to add to. Can't win on everything! I love the colors in the end part so I'd rather keep those than have it an Aeruillin chant.:)

People have already forgotten my pretty purple Allia flower.

*stands agape*
Ah yes!
The Allia!

This is lavendar, yes?
Then we have Straight ALLIA!
as well as Santharian purple.

And maybe a Vontron Blue?
Like, Aqua? I'd like that.
And...
Eophran Brown. Like a dark, oiled leather.

Hee.
You know.
We still need Styrash colors.
