Eyesgood's Ode to Wurm

This month marks 8 years I have been playing Wurm.  I thought I would celebrate by writing an Ode to my favorite MMO.  I hope you all enjoy reading it.

Eyesgood's Ode to Wurm

 

The game of Wurm
Some would say
Is a game you live
Not a game you play.

 

From dawn to dusk
With labors many
A Wurmian's work
Is always plenty.

 

Rising early 
Lighting the forge
The smith knows well
His many ores.

 

He crafts his weapons
Shields and tools.
His armor protects
The bravest fools.

 

A villager takes hold
Of rake and seed
Providing the village
With food they need.

 

Making and baking
The finest treats
From recipes learned
In lore and in feats.

 

Tending to horses
And breeding them right
She seeks the traits
For speed and might.

 

While yonder at
The tailor's loom
One crafts her squares
And dyes them too.

 

For tailors know
That proper attire
Helps craftsman, soldiers,
And even the Friar.

 

And speaking of soldiers
A friend returns bleeding.
His encounter with trolls
Was not so succeeding.

 

But lucky for him
A Fo priest was nearby
To cast such a spell
As to heal the poor guy.

 

And what's that sound
From the water's shore?
Looks like a village
Springs up next door.

 

The ships came in
And with shovels ready
They flattened the land
And constructed a jetty.

 

The miners worked hard
To open the rock.
A cave they soon made
To house their stock.

 

Dropping trees

and Mining stone
They fashioned walls
And built their homes.

 

They worked all day
And into the night.
They turned that wilderness
Into quite a sight!

 

They said they were heading
To chaotic lands
But needed a base
For their faction's plans.

 

They needed safety 
To train and prepare.
They weren't quite ready
To sail over there.

 

But best of all
We loved to see
They had a Shipwright
Which is what we need.

 

And talking much
We then discovered
They lacked the horses
For a wagon covered.

 

So trading we did
A bargain we struck.
A sailboat for four
Speedy horses they took.

 

Returning home
Our band was glad
We gave them the
Finest horses we had.

 

And the boat we received
When we looked in the hull
Had a shiny anchor
And a lock not so dull.

 

We anchored our boat 
And swam ashore
We'd made new friends
Not one but four!

 

Arriving home 
as The lamps were lit
We sat and we talked
Just a little bit.

 

Tomorrow's plans
We tried to make
A trip for lemons
We needed to take.

 

Our alchemist wanted
To create some clay.
More amazing things 
We do every day.

 

By then it was late
We retired to bed.
And as we slept
The tomatoes grew red.

 

For Wurm is a place
With seasons and weather.
A place we call home
Where we all live together.

 

The game of Wurm
Wurmians say
Is a game you live
Not a game you play.

I somehow adore this piece. Reminds me of the countless times I have done journeys that have taken hours and hours of travel away from home. Then, after a long journey back, I see my home lamps lit, like welcoming me back home. Never felt such joy and calmness when arriving to home after journey. Thank you for this amazing ode that truly gives all the credit for Wurm experience.
