|In the land of Nethal where light and dark warred
There lived the Order of the Righteous Sword
They fight for freedom against the Darkened Power
A grievous force that seeked to devour
With choler and sorcery they vexed the land
It seemed Nethals doom was hand
Then the Order found a magical stone
That would make the Powers weakness known
One day the Power was subdued
Driven off and hotly pursued
The Power was dealt a heavy blow
And on that day rest quickly flowed
It was a peaceful time that began in the Summer
Nethal rejoiced to see this wonder
For those few hours no one brandished the sword
Ruin ceased and no man mourned
The day went on with child like glee
For a time Nethal was prosperous an free.
The bright sun shone with precious freedom
Children played in the streets in Nethals kingdom
It was a summer day they hoped would last
The people prayed it would never pass
But then the Darkened Power somehow rose
And the next day it returned to make sadness and woe
The horror of battle revived with a vengeance
And the rejoicing of that day brought to silence
Nethal will never forget that Summer day
That short time without anguish or fray
