Metal & Earth


Better a tough horse than a swift one.


Tall and strong our stallions,
Bound in the meadow.
See their muscles ripple,
Watch their hooves clash.
War-horses for the king
Oh, pray that forever,
We may have horses this good!


The world you create around you – can it carry you? 
Will it support you in times of difficulty? 
Like a strong horse, 
you need to build a world of family and friends 
who will prove true when the time of testing comes, 
as come it will.
