Looking Up to Him   1501.07.01  
Creators: Elizabeth Barrette (Writer), Ellen Million (Inspiration), Layla Lawlor (Inspiration)
Tiren returns to Itadesh and acquires an age-set's worth of hero worship.
Posted: 03/12/13      [1 Comment] ~ 200 words.
 

Tiren came home to Itadesh
after the summer gather,
after wintering in Itrelir.

Fala and her age-mates
remembered him from before,
but now he was an adult --
and oh, he'd been to Lichenwold!
He'd been everywhere!

Anler watched Tiren always,
a little shy, but Tiren looked out for him.
Birka was quick to run to Tiren
as soon as she saw him coming.

Tetefii only became interested
when he showed her the finicky trick
of picking the edible mushrooms
that grew into rotting stumps.

Fala, though, she clung like a burr.
She followed him everywhere
when she could get away with it.
Even the raisers laughed and
called her his little filly-shadow.

Komesh and Emeina
were more casual; they would
listen to Tiren's stories
and go along on forest trips, but
their hearts belonged to the village.
Inav largely stayed with them.

So it was Fala and Tiren,
with or without the addition
of Anler and Birka,
flitting about the fringes
where the village joined the wild.

The older rangers teased them a little,
asking Tiren if he meant to be a raiser.
He just smiled and replied that
he didn't mind having would-be rangers
looking up to him.

Author's Notes

This poem was written based on some inspiration from Ellen Million and Layla Lawlor, to help establish the character of Tiren in relation to other characters.
