The Township of Claypool

A third song for the world of Guild Wars 2. the IC author for this is Kristen Kath, a human from Queensdale. OOC it is, of course, my work, and you might point anyone you sing it to this way if you like. 😉

Seriously though, I don’t require you to cite me, just not to say the work is your own. Enjoy!

The Township of Claypool

Far to the south there stand the walls
Of the Township of Claypool, solid and strong
Good folk carve their livelihood out of its halls
And refugees peter in from the road long

The centaur have harried them across the land
And they know the Seraph can be found within
So there do they go with but one small demand
To help them find safety, and solace, and kin

Far to the south there stand the walls
Of the Township of Claypool, solid and strong
A beacon for all on whom hardness falls
Bring us your harried, your hurt, and your wronged

Here the craftsmen ply their trades
As morning turns to night again
Here they forge both armor and blades
For heroes of common descent

Far to the south there stand the walls
Of the Township of Claypool, both solid and strong
They stand against fear and the desperate calls
Of those who are stranded from where they belong

The Apple and Arrow has good room and bed
To welcome in strangers from the weary road
And for a few coppers she’ll see you well fed
And the innkeep will welcome you to her abode

Far to the south there stand the proud walls
Of the Township of Claypool, both solid and strong
On the edge of the turmoil of Queensdale she sprawls
As one steady bastion deserving of song


Disclaimer: For the record, The Township of Claypool is a town in Tyria, and the Seraph are an organization from Guild Wars 2. The Apple and [the] Arrow is an inn from the Township of Claypool, and Queensdale is the region the township is in. To these things, and these names, I lay no claim. My only claim is in the arrangement of these particular words.
