what nomad means to me

I once asked the raven, Turul,

what became of old Arpad

and his seven tribes?”


He would not answer, so I

invited him to my home for a feast.

I thought to loosen his tongue

with good food and stronger wine.


After we’d eaten,

laughed, and drunk wine,

he did speak:


“’What happened to Arpad

and his seven tribes?’ you ask;

I know the Duna; she

swallowed them in stride.’”
