365 Poems in 365 Days: Related to Elves

I am your mother’s sister’s lover’s brother’s daughter
Family relationships are important to the fey
I have urgent news to avoid another slaughter
We must flee and plan to fight another day

Family relationships are important to the fey
These clan bonds are what must keep us now
We must flee and plan to fight another day
Hoping this defeat does not our spirits cow

These clan bonds are what must keep us now
But I don’t know if they are strong enough to hold
Hoping this defeat does not our spirits cow
We are not strangers so we can be bold

But I don’t know if they are strong enough to hold
I have urgent news to avoid another slaughter
We are not strangers so we can be bold
I am your mother’s sister’s lover’s brother’s daughter

Number 283 is another Elf Poem, and another Pantun. Also finally a use for the family trees in the back of the elf novel I'm never going to write.
