Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Baroness Jorun Aragunrsdottir (formerly known as Gillian de Chelseye) (modernly known as Melissa Silsby)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2018-12-02

When We were at war
Or at arms’ training,
Together We’d fare forth
To seek every fight.
You were Our comrade,
Our clan and Our kinswoman;
Never found We one dearer;
Your company makes Us glad!

Great rewards in arm-rings,
Share of plain and forest,
Freedom of your children
From this day till doom!
Jorun Arragunrsdottir,
More than you could hope for:
Why should you refuse it,
That which all would take?

We, Cynnabar’s Kasha and Ermenrich, give you Our Award of the Elephants Heart.
Let none countermand Our words.
