Award of the Tower’s Light

Awarded to Terryl MacAodhagain (modernly known as Terryl Sperlich)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2017-12-16

This is the woman, the artist who has the name of Terryl

These are the colors in her raiment, arts of every kind
without sameness of distinction or peculiarity.

This is the music that floats in through the tops of the
trees, her eloquence in correcting the judgments of her

This is the wind that refreshes Our gardens, her liberality
in dispensing her jewels and treasures.

In Our time she comes forth, stronger than legends. Thus
do We grant to her Our Award of the Tower’s Light. Let
none countermand Our words.
Based on an excerpt from a Middle Irish dindsencha found in the Rennes Manuscript
(probably written down in the 15th century but composed as early as the 11th).
