A Song of Salt and Sorrow

[ A song for calling a particular Huntsman of Sahtet, called Shade.  ‘A song of salt and sorrow’ was a phrase a friend used to describe a summoning song for them, and a song of salt and sorrow was what I ended up writing.  I’m not going to explain it any further here, but it’s the first actual song I’ve written in years, and it has a lot of meaning to it, both for the character and for me. ]

A song of salt and sorrow
things hidden in the shade
A promise for the morrow
and the fire to be made.

A song of salt and sorrow
to call the Huntsman here:
to every wound its yarrow;
to those who darkness wear.
