I will soon though, as the weather will be cold and rainy for the next few days so I will be taking a...

"War Horse" poem By Glaedr the poet

Not by sky, but by land he charged forth to take a stand When the great knights of old mounted the saddle The war horses knew it was time for battle! Through the wind, rain, moon, and sun The war horse galloped on; until the battle was won.
