Poem composed by King Rogbert when he and his hunting party were cast off their horses by a burning visage of a black elk.
What mortal man dare to stand
In the presence of the Black Elk?
What fire has he
That the Elk does not envelop?
With horns like darkened ivory
And eyes of burning suns
With hooves that singe against the dirt
And breath that turns to steam
Aye the man that stands would be mortal
For not long shall he stand in the presence
Of the Black Elk!
