(this log's from cadee's perspective, and was originally posted to the tfc forums)

Cadee stands up, and laces her fingers behind her back to still their fidgeting.

Cadee clears her throat softly, and with a determined expression, recites:

You say (in common), 'There's bards that can chant from the dawn through the night '.

You say (in common), 'And meet each performance with joy and delight. '.

You say (in common), 'I've gone to the Delving and read every boooook.... '.

You say (in common), 'But each audience still thinks that I am a kook. '.

Cadee bounces on her heels slightly, unknowingly accenting the cadence of her words.

You say (in common), 'my exploits be simple, with respect my due '.

You say (in common), 'Ignoring the part where I come all unglued '.

You say (in common), 'With each that I face, through my terror sublime, '.

Cadee bites her lip, an expression of hope on her face.

Cadee smiles slightly, and gazes at each one present, in turn, as she continues.

You say (in common), 'I thank each of you who have witnessed today, '.

You say (in common), 'and listened to each stammered word that I say '.

You say (in common), 'Tyn bless you, and keep you, and in safety stay, '.
