Poems and riddles about Heroes 5

I just right now, straight from my mind, while filling my glass up with cola. Summed up a few poems about the races in H5 (Is this the coffein, sugars doing?
I think I actually have a good day, since I often sum up riddles and poems as a symphtome
I think this thread could be for everbody who are creative in their way of daydreming, creating poems and such about H5 So please share

Well lets get right into it and see if I remember...

Orcs Revenge

Barbarians from the east gritters teeth
with a bloody fury, hatred and rage
bringing destruction upon the humans mace
and their striking religious power
which plagues the freedom of tribes
though many would say, why all this bloodspilling
just because of they, who dont believe in something greater than  orcish earth mother and air father heir?
For them reds the freedom shall not be the orcs dream coming true, oh ney!

Orcs from east stand up to feast
and not at least give these who say such.. that clearly are polluted of Biaras reign
that the humans will no more be when the wyverns strike down on thee
who are behind this evil reign.
Rise arms, take lifes
Show them no mercy
On our homelands barren plains!

Elven Cousins

In the woods they belong
Without fear
For their dark hearted
family which in caves they live
Elves from the woods preserve and live
with natures gift to calm them..
with the chilling wind
As dark clouds rise
the wooden elves
knows that they are safe
under mother natures protective
wooden, weins.

What do you think? IMO it sounded a bit different and better when I stood by the fridge and rhymed it freely. I lose a bit of inspiration when sitting in front of the monitor
Feedback welcome..in a constructive way

I am not much for poetry but I see you have made something pretty good A few things though. Orcs bring destruction on the humans' maces? I did not understand the belief in something greater than a past orcish slave. And I'd try to avoid rhyming with the same word ie live
Details of course, you know how to capture the feel and that's more important.

@Geny
Not all poems have to rhyme. I used to think that way too but there are different kinds of poetry.

I know, white poetry or white rhymes. I know they exist, but I never understood it. What sets apart a white poem from a simple story?

A white poem is a lyric text while the "simple" story is epic. Well that's the detail version but in generell everything that is divided into "verses" (i hope you this is the english word" classifices as a poem (you'd probably know that one). And as you pointed out poems usually have a rythem or rhyme sceme but it is not necassary. Hope that helped you.

About the poems... kind of impressed that THIS comes to you while standing in front of the fridge to get a coke. It certainly isn't bad but somehow i prefer peoms with rhyms... eventhough "Orcs from east stand up to feast" made me smile.

Yes, I understand...
Maybe I don't like it that much because I can't find the rhythm you used when you wrote them, and it's hard for me to read the poem without it.

Thanks for the impressions guys Yeah, I admit I didnt get the poems to rhyme as much as I wanted too..they turned out to be mini stories

Well the human maces are a methapor on that the Biara ruled renegades are a "mace" that will say a hard crushing crusade on those that are against them

It should be past orcish slaves

And I rewrote it to be like: just because of they, who dont believe in something greater than orcish earth mother and air father heir?

Oh, what the hell...
I wasn't too proud of that song when I wrote it, but now that I've reread it, I figured it's not as bad as I remembered, so I guess I'll post it here to keep the thread going.

Shadow Of Death

They ride to battle,
Their weapons unsheathed.
To fight the evil
That the world has unleashed.
Four lonely horseman
On the path of no return,
Will stop at nothing
So their kingdoms wouldn't burn!

[Chorus:]
A mighty barbarian,
A wizard seeking truth,
A druid from another land,
A half-elf from the woods,
They all will fight
Until their last breath,
In order to defeat
The Shadow of Death!!!

They were deceived
By a necromancer's game.
For his great powers
The four heroes were to blame.
When they found out
What the artifacts were for,
To crush the zombies,
And redeem themselves they swore.

[Repeat Chorus]

And now the battle
For the sake of good began.
The ghosts are running,
This is not what evil planned.
Weapons are blazing,
Hordes of skeletons fall down,
And at the sunrise
Necromancer lost his crown.

[Repeat Chorus]

Geny> Hey, that poem is great! Have you really made that yourself? I'm impressed!

Ok, here's my try. I know it's bad, ecpesially the late part, but it was fun to write it anyway

Before we had a mighty king,
Son of Alexai the knight.
The Griffin Empire was on it's height,
and the people walked in the light.

He was strong and he was bold,
and Nicolai was his name.
He was strong in all his doings,
and his wife was all the same.

When danger came to the capital,
and Nicolai had to fight,
She lead her people into battle,
and showed our enemies our might.

But Nicolai fell in the centre of battle,
to a demonlord's hand.
His wife Isabel was mad of grief,
and sorrow went over the land.

Now she was the one to rule,
over the cities of men,
But even the wisest could not guess,
what would happen then.

The queen saw no happines in life,
when enemies attacked the cities of men.
She would do anything,
to see her husband again.

And then the necromancer arrived,
and Isabel's advicer saw red.
But she trusted Markal cause he said,
that he could make Nicolay rise from the dead.

Markal was an evil man,
who twisted Isabel.
From then the necro ruled the land,
and quiet was the churchbell.

But then the evil Markal was killed,
by heroes from serveral races.
They defeated the undead and then they left,
to deal with demonic cases.

Remember theese heroes in your mind,
when the hours are late.
They saved us from the Sheog invasion,
and freed our queen from her evil fate.

Quite good actually. Could do with cosmetic changes here and there, but overall quite good.

(and yes, I did write it all by myself. Took my some too, because it didn't "flow" right away like some other songs)

Just one question Geny: Who is Gelu and who is Gem (if I remember the names right)?

Well, Gem isn't really a ranger. She was a sorceress in HoMM 1,2 and I think she was a druid in Homm3. So she's the elf. Besides, Gelu is only half elf.

Are you sure about that? (oh, wait, it's cepheus)
Forget I asked.
Well... she was impersonating an elf.

Edit: seriously though, are you sure she's a human? Has it been actually said somewhere?

Gem was a sorcerer in the elven lands,
and a druid she became.
Her skills and knowlenge was well known,
and she lived in fame.

But Sandro took her artifacts form her,
and without paying he descided to run.
In fury Gem left with three other dudes,
to find Sandro and give him some fun
