Earnin is Taken as a Squire

From EastKingdomWiki

Written by Toki Redbeard in drottkvaett. In A.S. 39 at the Opening of the Inn in Coldwood, Master Roibhlin took Earnin has his first squire at sunset.

While gold globe descended,
great neighbors stood watching.
Householders and hersirs
heard Roibhlin speak softly.
A branch was grasped, gleaming,
to grant a mood solemn.
War-leader's heir witnessed
while good oaths were given.

Wise warrior promised
warfare to teach Earnin.
If body get broken,
to bear his corpse homeward.
Then strong-minded Skaya
stepped towards Earnin's lady.
Women and warriors
welcomed a new thyngman.
