Draw the children close and speak to them softly. Hold them tight, dry
their tears as well as your own.
This day there is one less empty bench in Bragi's Hall. Master Mikal
Hrafspa, (Mikal the Ram) who referred to himself as an annoying Bard
with no redeeming qualities, has taken to the Swan Road one last time.
At 2:15 18 August 2008 he was welcomed into the famed hall of the
Skalds and offered his rightful seat near the fire to rest his body
for ever more. There his horn will never be empty of mead. His feet
never weary from fire walking. Where he can tell tales and sing songs
to his hearts content.
His only regret may be that he will never again be able to tell a King
that he must turn down a royal invitation and go off to tell tales to
the most important people of Calontir, the children. And that the
cries and clamor to hear Uncle Master Mikal will be heard no more.
Though the wails of mourning can be heard in his house, His pyre is
being prepared. The Oracles are being consulted for the proper time
and place. When this is divined, word will be sent forth for those
Roust the Heralds and send them forth to spread this sad news through
out the Kingdom and Known World.
With bowed head and heavy heart I post this notice;
Master Eadweard Boicewright
