In many lands and realms

The people say the chill


Running swift along the spine

Sending shivers to the core


Is born from future footsteps

As one’s grave is passed once more


In still more lands and realms

The people dare to duel


And wager with their lives

For sake of thought up honor


Or perhaps to prove a point

All come ready for the slaughter


In one such realm of chill and duel

There dwelt a daunting figure


To fight her was no gamble

Thus all shrewd opponents fled


For not once had Rava shivered

In four hundred years, ‘tis said
