…could help teach him to defend himself. He soon found out from the locals that there was such a man that could help him. A man of great strength and great power. This man’s name was Emeron, but he was said to be crazy and belligerent. Forced out by the people he was now considered to be an outcast, and had been so for many, many years now. Ocieleoz sought to find him and found a man unfamiliar to him in the woods and followed him back to his house. After a week of watching him daily, and finding out this was indeed Emeron, Ocieleoz approached him only to be shut down by threat of death. Ocieleoz continued to watch and spy on Emeron for a few weeks, learned his habits and routines, until one evening Emeron did not show up to his house. Ocieleoz took this opportunity to sneak into Emeron’s house, but was soon caught in a trap just inside the back door that roped his foot and flung him upside down. Hitting his head on the ground during this knocked him out. He was woken by Emeron later that night. Recognizing Ocieleoz to be the priests son, he fetched Arwén to come retrieve his boy.

…addition to a sequence, comes at rather a late hour, in more ways than one. I have been preoccupied with a trip I am planning to take at the beginning of April, 2013–the first of such travel in quite a long while for me. I found myself avoiding everything–including thought. Still, tonight I had to see if I could push through it. I am pleased to see that I am able to do so. I have posted tonight’s entry which is now scheduled to go up on the 28th.

The newest entry is a Reverse Spenserian with alternating rhyme at the first of the line–alternating similar sounds. Plus a few internal rhymes as well. The Reverse Spenserian scheme has a slowly metamorphosing rhyme sound scheme. So each new rhyme is related to the last in some way. And each alternative rhyme is related to its former by an addition of an ‘R’ sound added to the final vowel syllable.
