The winter blast is stem and cold.
Yet summer has its harvest gold.
Sorrow and gloom the soul may meet,

Yet rivers to the ocean run.
Karth brings the bitterness of pain.

maniacal laugh greeted him, and the
black, hairy creature disappeared,

creature's lungs led the hunter to be

than a bear, and mustering as ranch
courage as he could command, he
started to investigate. He had gone

The time had arrived for action, and
