The Muster

By Lady Fiona of the Harp

I see a fire burning on hilltop
It is the muster calling us to war
I hear the drums they are beating in the nighttime
It is the muster calling us to war
I hear the pipers playing in the morning
It is the prince he is calling us to war

I join the muster we march at daybreak
We march in the morning from the western field
Onward we march with our spears and our armor
Onward we march with our swords and our shields
Onward we march with our pennants flying brightly
We fly the color of the great Northshield

The time has come to free the griffon
Free the griffon from the dragon's den
The time has come to free the griffon
The people shouted "now" when the prince asked "when?"
The time has come to free the griffon
From the dragon and the dragon's men

We march to the east to meet the Midrealm
We meet Midrealm on the battlefield
We demand a kingdom for Northshield
When the king shakes his head all our fates are sealed
On we fight 'til the battlefield is littered
With the bodies of the warriors of Midrealm and Northshield

King and prince they stand together
Father and son amidst the gore
A truce is reached to grant kingdom to Northshield
Kingdom to Northshield to end this bloody war
As the heralds cry the news to the people
Over it all we hear the griffon roar

Westward we march to give glory of Northshield
Our bards have new tales and songs to sing
Westward we march to give glory of Northshield
Our army on foot and the griffon on the wing
Westward we march to give glory to Northshield
Glory to Northshield and our new found king
