Award of the Tower’s Light

Awarded to Dillon ap Dillon

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2017-04-23

We are the agitators
Of the praise of these Our people.
With respect to Dillon Ap Dillon,
We set him before you.
He is not a mute artist,
Conspicuous among the artisans of the people.
He animates the bold,
He influences the heedless.
He is not a shallow artist,
Conspicuous among kindred artisans,
The likeness of a subtle portion,
A prize in every unveiling.
What will join together the common people?
Deep still water,
And the influence of an order of men
Exposed to the breeze of the sky.

Thus do We, Kasha and Ermenrich, Baron and Baroness of Cynnabar, grant to Dillon ap Dillon Our Award of the Tower's Light. Let none countermand Our words.
