The Kirin

With angel’s touch horse grew giant horn

Its body changed into heavenly unicorn

Scaled covered its sleek body white 

Its tail and body sprouting fire holy bright 

Its blue eyes spoke keen intellect

With booming voice it sang thankful respect

‘O mortals our tormented curse you’ve broken

Your praise on mountains shall be spoken

To your good deed we are beholden

Beware the dark prince on throne golden

For his ignorant armies mass in the night

To threaten Crane Castle with terrible might

Help you we cannot but take a lock of my hair

Let its flame guide you west like a holy flare

With it the Stone of Oberoth you shall find

Its protection around the Castle shall wind.’

Then angel mounted beast and flew away

In heaven they would wait ’til fateful day
