Great and noble Mogetius, battle-wise,
strong beyond strong, brave beyond brave, your mettle
and your might are without peer. Mogetius
of the contested lands, you watched as men
of ambition and greed worked their subtle craft
and brought their brutal art to bear. Good Mogetius,
warder of the wall, watcher at the gate, in you
did the humble place their trust, in you did the luckless
put their faith. Friend of the soldier and the citizen,
ever do you tend the tree within the wood,
ever do you see the sorrow within
the story. Mogetius, I praise and honor you.
