Arrows let loose from a thousand bows spread like a stain across the skies: a thousand arcs of danger descending.
Waiting and watching, the army defending raise their shields with worried eyes: Who will survive? Blind fortune knows!
A poem, cousin to such lethal darts, can land, unexpected, in our hearts.
