Writer's Choice


Talisman of death

Symbol of the Reaper

They come at night and take their due

Like the fruit of the harvest

But the harvest is of souls, not grain.


Made of wood

They are the traditional weapon of an elf.

(At least in fantasy)

Powerful yet quiet,

They embody the spirit of a forest.


The kings of weapons in writers' minds,

Deadly yet graceful

Honed steel,

Fighting for either Light or Dark,

They can carry enchantments

Or be merely a tool.
