Bri Posted October 20, 2003 Share Posted October 20, 2003 Yoshimo: "Delainy, how adverse are you to...suggestions...on your poetry?" Delainy: "What do you mean Yoshimo? If you find my voice grating, I apologize. I won't deny that my music is appreciated by all. Truth be known, I wouldn't know how to react if it was..." Yoshimo: "That is not what I meant. Your voice is fine, but the nature of what you Faerunians call poetry...I would offer a suggestion, if you would be so kind to listen and judge it worthy of your attention." Delainy: *interested* "What do you exactly mean? I tried to master the styles I've encountered here, but even I know that there are more than any one bard could master." Yoshimo: "I am no poet, but the lines seem strained to my ear. It is as if you try to cram as many words as possible into a line, when simplicity itself is most elegant. If it got out that I even expressed...such...an interest...my reputation would suffer for it." Delainy: *gives a slight smile* "You aren't exactly giving me a lot to work with. Don't worry, I won't tell anyone your secret...but I think it is even simpler than that. Tell me, Yoshimo, how long has it been since you last were home?" Yoshimo: "It has been a long time. That is in the past, though, and Yoshimo lives for the future." Delainy: *slight tear in her eye* "Whether you will say it or not, I will. I miss my home. Many is the night that I wish I can go back....but there is no going back..." Yoshimo: "I beg pardon for causing you to remember grief..." Delainy: "Forget it Yoshimo. I don't need your apology, for not all memories are bittersweet..." Delainy: *smiles shyly* "Tears for a tragic song Recollections of a distant scape Solace in thoughts of home..." Yoshimo: "Delainy...that was..." Delainy: "Sorry if it wasn't what you were looking for Yoshimo..." Link to comment
