Seaspray and silver
Moonlight and snow
Long shining locks
Ripple and flow.

Onyx and midnight
Shadow and jet
Dark lips are smiling
Subtly in threat.

Coral and rubies
Blood and the rose
Eyes full of secrets
Only he knows.
Felt like posting this - a poem dedicated to what might be considered a 'classic' drow appearance - white hair, black skin, red eyes.
For drow one would normally use 'she', not 'he' as the default pronoun, I think, but I was thinking of particular drow of mine when I wrote it and they happen to be male. :)

Also some of the comparisons it might not be ones drow would make, not being frequently exposed to the objects in question, but it's my poem, not theirs. They're just the subject. =P

I think the use of a male totally brings it to a new level :D Well done :D

Thanks! :)
I think all drow have their secrets - the male ones just have to keep their mouths shut more about theirs. ;)

Or risk getting their mouths shut for good :D I think you're totally right. that's one reason I've always liked the drow so much :D
