Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Ciara Thorgrimsdottir (modernly known as Carol Sanford)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2018-12-02

Happy, We say, | were We to behold
Ciara Thorgrimsdottir | here in Our hall;
In Our hall is din; | let all drink deep,
Till the warrior hardy | sounds her horn.
From her sheath she drew | her shining sword,
Her blade to the giants | joy to give.
She has greatly fought; | o’er the enemy does she stand
By her blade laid low, | like eagles on branches.
Great her fame though she die | today or tomorrow;
None outlives the night | when the Norns have spoken.

With time thus in mind, do We, Ermenrich and Kasha, lords of Cynnabar, grant to her Our Award of the Elephants Heart.
Let none countermand Our words.
