Sheldarien

Poet of the Apollo Sect  
(He lived from 1,852 Ab Terra Condita to 1,924 Ab Terra Condita)

Sheldaren was one of the last poets of the NeoPenthian Age in Heliopolis.  Like all followers of the Penthian style, Sheldaren’s poetry is filled with unusual imagery and minimalist style.  Although he is considered a Master of Apollo’s School of the Arts, it is important to note that he also attended Dionysus’ Conservatory of the Arts and made it to the adept level as a singer.  He was the poet laurite of Heliopolis for over a decade and wrote almost 220 poems.  This archive entry includes a few examples of his poetry.

 

Ode to a Spring Shower

 

Droplets of rain burning with kaleidoscopic flame

Deluge the soft petals of a Hephaestian fire bloom.

Dancing rays of morning collide with arrows of water

Volleyed down from the bright blue sky

Demeter’s tranquil garden gives way to Athena’s battlefield.

 

 

 

Lament

 

As the sun leaves the sky at the dawn of the evening

And the shadows of night creep through the twilight of day

I lay down my burdens, but my heart it grows weary.

As I think of my love and a world far away.
