Eulogy: Octave

Kalliope writes a new octave in remembrance of Danaan and the cycle that has begun:

One gave us our eyes and taught us how to see.
Two comforted our sight.
Three showed us the beauty of the world.
Four gave a glimpse of knowledge.
Five protected our gift with reason.
Six revealed the hidden.
Seven showed us the battle.
Eight made us wish we had never seen at all.

Bard of Undine
