The life of Qorswyn and Qorra

Ellen Datlow

The life of Qorswyn and Qorra
Love started when they were both young
Up and down spiral as sung

Not settling and lots of drama
The list goes on and they both run
They met again and had some fun

In and out, what an enigma
He gave her a topaz mirror
Like a prayer has been answered

Trust was broken and there was trauma
And love was laced with betrayal
No choice but say farewell, hurtful

Who receives in the end karma?
Like a saint Qorra forgives him
But doesn’t forget the sad hymn*
