Elfin Obelisk   Leave a comment

“We do not want merely to see beauty… we want something else which can hardly be put into words- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. That is why we have peopled air and earth and water with gods and goddesses, and nymphs and elves.”
― C.S. Lewis

And so the Elfin Lords met in council one winter night. Lord Albewin rose from his seat and said, “Fellow Elf Lords. It has come to my attention that our obelisk to the night sky who provides us with the safe covering for our dances, our singing and our play is in disrepair. It is time we build a new one to honor her. I have therefore appointed a group of our best elfin craftsmen, headed by master craftsman Ælfsige, to build a new one. This will ensure that our nightly rituals will continue to be protected by the stars that twinkle, the moon that shines and the clouds that dance with us. And so the council agreed and as it was spoken so it was written and so it was done. And this is the obelisk that Ælfsige and his crew produced before it was installed in its upright position in a secret elfin glen.
