Raven phoned me during The Singin'est Post-Revel In Town after Boar's Head
to share the following song with folks. I just received the text tonight;
alas, I don't recall the tune from a single hearing with much noise in the
background (go figure ;> ).
Oh, and among other things, Raven is the one who wrote the bardic college's
original charter, and rewrote parts of it to present to our King & Queen
for ratification of the Northshield Kingdom bardic college. When Cerian
read the charter in court at Boar's Head, Raven was the gentleman in a
brown robe and no hair, who also went up.

Song at Parting
Why does sorrow burrow at the hollow of our heart
When we know each "Merry Meet" is followed by a "Merry Part"?
Should not joy as deeply dwell when we think ahead to when
Every "Merry Part" is followed by a "Merry Meet Again"?
[composed upon leaving the Boar's Head Feast of Caer Anterth,
December 4, 2004.]
[intended for singing at that night's Bardic Post-Revel,
which, alas, I could not attend.]
-- C.M. Joserlin, "Raven"
