A BORNEO LULLABY
Come, little ones.
Come to Iba, Empaya Iba.
Touch my soft fur.
Look deep into my all-seeing eyes.
Come to Empaya Iba of the Midnight Flower and the Far Forest.
Curl into me.
Sleep in my silk.
Come to Empaya Iba, guardian of the Mother Soil, giver of the Long Sleep, spirit of the Black Orchid People.
Gaze tired eyes at my mark. Come to the one who bears it.
Sleep with us, him and me, Empaya Iba, mage of the Many Legs.
