IXI DAY SPECIAL
Free as the Ixi
See here the silhouette,
The dusky shadowed form,
Atop the jagged cliff,
Rearing 'gainst the dazzling sun,
Proud head flung back,
Horns curled amidst the darkened locks,
Delicate hooves, and a petite black nose,
Numbered just one.
And gracefully does he settle
'Pon the land once more,
To turn but with a swish of his tail
And a flick of his ears,
See there, the playful Ixi,
Dash down the heathery slope,
And as he does dance and caper,
Light does glisten on your tears.
You are not sad, oh no,
Those tears be not of sorrow,
But of joy, for one such as he,
So light hearted and free,
As frolicking 'cross
The land's vast, open plains
And dashing 'cross the hills
Of Meridell does venture he.
A Night of Trouble
My sister's cousin's uncle's friend
Once lived in Meridell
Enjoying the old fashioned lives
And fellows there so well
But he did remember one time
Where all was not so right
And all the people there recall
The Oh-So Troubled Night
It was a day in Meridell
Where weather had its high
The air was just as warm as fire
And water, not in sight
Weather has its toll on us
And our sensitive moods
All were sad and even Skarl
Would not lay eyes on food!
A clever little Ixi
Known to be mischievous
Had plans to furthur terrorize
And cause a bigger fuss!
That night when all were fast asleep
This Ixi rubbed his hands
"They're already so fretted up,
perfect for my plans!"
And so the Ixi pranced around
Down to the castle's moat
He shifted all of Sinsi's shapes
Into the Petpet's coats!
He switched around a sign or two
And minds were such a fog
Why were people kissing Turdles
and betting on Mortogs?
Poker chips were berries now
And cards, in Illusen's glade
Potatoes became arrows
And pets were counting blades!
Rolling cheese on Turmaculus'
Stomach wasn't much fun
If Kayla was selling food today
Then where are the potions, gone?
All of Skarl's so-precious gold
Was scattered 'round the castle
And playing Meriball with twigs
Was really quite a hassle!
The next morning the Ixi thought
He'd have the biggest laugh
He thought that once he went outside
That all would be in a gaffe!
So once he stepped outside the door
He expected grumpy faces
But everyone was laughing so
In all his tortured places!
It seemed that his so troubled plan
Was a joke to everyone
The Ixi ran away with anger
"This isn't very fun!"
And this is where The Troubled Night
Comes to its very end
A story that I heard from my
sister's cousin's uncle's friend.
You always spent your time alone
While the other Ixi played,
You never bothered to come out
To see the light of day.
I pestered, bugged and bothered you
To leave your room for once,
To join our game of Meriball
And finally have some fun.
But you would never listen,
You were busy at your own games,
Not playing them but making them
From the bowels of your brain.
You analyzed and realigned
Your puzzles, your mind-teasers,
Until they clicked and satisfied you
You made sure that they weren't easy.
They thought there was no hope for you,
You'd never learn to be
A farmer, merchant or a knight
We'd given up, you see.
Then one day, you surprised us all
When you came out of hiding,
Calling pets from near and far
To come and hear your tidings.
We saw your posters and we knew
What they proclaimed was true,
But we couldn't, we still can't believe
What they advertised was you.
Letters bold, large and italicized,
Though you were just a child
You were already immortalized.
Sinsi, I am sorry that I ever doubted you
And as your brother, as your friend,
I'd like to say, I tried your puzzle
I never made it to the end.
It was a freezing, blustery day,
When Tarla set her sights
Upon the Mount of Terror
Up in the snowy heights.
She tuned her heart and soul
To opening a shop.
Where else but Terror Mountain?
Right at the very top.
She braved the fiercest winds,
And faced the driving snow.
Her resolve never did waver,
Her pace - steady but slow.
At last she stood triumphant,
That Ixi fair and strong.
Who challenged the odds - and won,
To help her goal along.
She resides there still, I hear,
In her Shop of Mystery,
But more important than the shop
Is how it came to be.
No matter what the obstacle,
Or how hard it may seem,
Tarla the Ixi proved herself
By fighting for her dream.
An Ixi, Invisible
Illusion in a field of green,
Prints from creature quite unseen.
Though Ixi herds do frolic here,
Things are not as they appear.
For in the group lurks one alone,
The Ixi of transparent tone.
Invisible, so seen by none,
And yet with herd do small hooves run.
Silken strands on breeze do float,
Unseen, unnoticed is his coat.
Those tiny prints formed on the ground
Are made by one who is not found.
Anonymous, but always there,
This tiny fawn, so very rare.
For where he dwells no one shall guess,
And yet his place here is no less.
A vital member of the herd,
The hidden one, unseen, unheard.
The grass is chewed by one unseen,
So rather eerie, such a scene.
A secret laugh that fades away,
A merry phantom, he'll portray.
From strangers coat protects and shields,
The hidden guest in Ixi fields.
