The Gray Mouser, One and Two



The Gray Mouser : 1

The city lifts black roof-shields toward the stars
And shuts the jungle out with mortised stones
And seals the scent of flowers in glass jars
And locks Earth’s secrets up in brass-clasped tomes
No satyr may live there, no faun survive
The stench and clangor of each crowded street.
The white-fanged beasts of night cannot contrive
To gnaw an entrance through its black concrete.

Yet ‘mongst the gargoyles on the slated roofs
One gray-masked face peers down with living  grin
That mocks the scurry of the city’s floor.
Two gray-gloved hands tease ope’ the library’s door
And break the ponderous books and scribble in
Footnotes that give the lie to all proud proofs.
-                                            
                                                                                                                         Fritz Leiber 





The Gray Mouser : 2

Soft-sandaled feet press lightly on the stones
That cobble Lankhmar’s mazy alleyways;
A grayish cloak melts in the river mist
That billowing with many a darting twist
Fumes round the corner from the nighted bays
To chill with sorcery men’s blood and bones;
Only a bat whose sharp ears caught one sound
Knows that the Mouser is on business bound.

A jewel from Quarmall or a girl from Kled,
A caravel said to be docking soon,
A rune that Sheelba magicked from the dead,
Or a dread whisper from beyond the moon
What man can name the thing the Mouser seeks
Or read the smile that links his sallow cheeks?

-                                                                                                                             Fritz Leiber


    Both included in the White Wolf edition of Ill Met in Lankhmar. 

Il    Illustrations by Mike Mignola

            God bless Fritz Leiber.

GamesBX 20 said...

The first year I went to college, I studied hard. I have a friend who lives next to him, he often plays games overnight, he's very thin but smart. So I feel uncomfortable when he plays and sometimes yelling, I hate being bothered by him, I can concentrate to work or study.
One beautiful day, I know: You are studying information technology, you want to create a game that can be suitable for anyone. This reason makes him play many different games to find focus on each game. I keep an eye on him, I think his ideas are great. I started talking to my neighbors and trying the game. Because I have never played it, my limbs are not flexible, my eyes are not fast and my head is reflective but my friends are not. He can play any game perfectly. Then, once a week, I follow him to the game store and my life is changing right now.
When playing games, we must focus and have a clear strategy. If you are familiar with this, you will easily succeed in many other areas. We can solve all problems in life when the mood is good and the best way to relax is to play the game, you can forget all the bad things, you can neglect any body, even are beautiful boys. The boy is coming and sitting beside me because of his intense concentration. You can make friends with many smart people and special interests. However, you should play on a purposeful schedule to avoid being addicted.
I realize: something in life is bad if we see them for the first time, but you can learn about reality to have an objective assessment for it.
