Ode to Tonbo

One of the earliest surviving texts that discusses the town of Tonbo.

Ode to Tonbo

By Miiko, First Mayor of Tonbo

written circa 4084 IE

Tonbo, set within the harmonious woods
whose gentle streams
harbor the chatter of night crickets.

Strong hillsides of rock full of fertile caves
beset with gems
are wrought by the giving hands of gods.

Surrounded by strange auras and sprits,
our nature hums
with life that is full and not our own. 

Deep and engorged with subtle mystery,
the streams and woods
babble with strange and unexpected.

The sun shines on the outlaws and outcasts:
people displaced
honest, and searching for peace and calm.
