Order of Saint Barbara of Cynnabar

Awarded to Siri Toivosdotter (modernly known as Jo-Ann Sheffer)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2018-12-02

For fabling braggarts
Full are We of scorn,
But willing speak We
Of worthy friends:
Them better deem We
Than brightest gold,
The gift oft given
By glorious kings.

Now shall Our voice-plane
Shape into song
Virtues full many
Of valiant friend
And set forth open
In sight of all
The laud and honor
Of high-born ally.

Thus We, Ermenrich and Kasha, name Siri Toivosdotter to Our Order of St. Barbara of Cynnabar.
Let none countermand Our words.
