Three Visually Challenged Rodents: Another Nursery Rhyme Story

Erin Luce

In searching for accurate lyrics to the nursery rhyme, 'Three Blind Mice', I came across a website which gave not only lyrics, but also historical origins of this and quite a few other nursery rhymes. Apparently this rhyme refers to three rebellious nobles (the mice) who were burned at the stake by the queen (the farmer's wife). I can't help but wonder why small children would want to hear about such things as a nursery rhyme, so I have come up with a story behind the rhyme that hopefully is somewhat more pleasant, although I did take inspiration from the whole fire idea.

The Dreamer's Tale

Shawn Reed

Perhaps some of you wonder how the title has anything to do with the story... Well, this was originally a project I did for a composition class in high school. We needed to write a story in the fashion of a noted artist. I chose the only well-known medieval age writer. I consider myself a dreamer. Thus, this is the story I told.

The first tale of Murklusia!

Murklusia is a place unknown to the reader currently, but this poem describes one area in the large land. It describes the start of a tale of five heroes who set off to save the world from destruction, but what is to come of them?

Kratai Amevinreth

Anita King

A song in Atorinth, from Karselen, with the English translation. It sounds much better in Atorinth than English, if you ask me. This song has two ways to interpret it, because 'Amevinreth' is both the name of the Phoenix (symbol of the monarch of Karselen), and the word for wisdom in this language. In iambic tetrameter, if I remember my terms correctly.

Song of Return (song)

D. Hendrikson

When the dragons are driven from an island west of Kingsland, they pledge to return after the island is destroyed. As always, I'm looking for critique.
