William

I will be releasing a special collection of poems ~ this one being the first.
Each poem will reflect a character in the book where “Zypher’s Promise” came from.
Adapted from children rhymes (which will be displayed first), they will tell you a bit more about the personality of Zypher and her group; it will also include a short author’s note from me at the end.
There will also be a picture or two that I feel matches the character either physically or otherwise~! ; )

Original:

Boys and girls
come out to play,
The moon doth shine
as bright as day,
Leave your supper,
and leave your sleep,
And come with your playfellows
into the street.
Come with a whoop,
come with a call,
Come with a good will,
or not at all.
Up the ladder
and down the wall,
A halfpenny loaf
will serve us all.
You find milk,
and I’ll find flour,
And we’ll have pudding
within the hour


William’s:
Servants and maids
Need not be afraid
You, my lady shall protect
As fiercely as she does me
Forget your unfinished chores
And forget your master’s snores
I’ll lead the way, so just follow me
Deeper into the forest
Come with your hopes
Come with your worries
Come for your friend
But don’t come not at all
Over this fallen tree
Just beyond the town limits
A chance to escape
Awaits each one of us
You gather your courage
And I’ll find a safe destination
So you may safely run away
Within our shadows safe embrace

Author’s note:

William is the oldest of Zypher’s saved children, 15 years of age. He and Z have helped each other out so much that neither can tell who owes more life debts. As a general rule, kids are taboo to hurt or abuse, so when this group wanders through town you can be sure to find missing kids the next day! Helping them find better places with better people; which is why this is William’s poem~ <3

I shall let you get back to the story now;
Happy reading!
