Asha'ille is undergoing a spelling reform and this page might not have been updated yet!

If you see many apostrophes, it's pre-reform. If you see î and only a few apostrophes, it's post-reform. — Arthaey

Amanda Babcock ran Relay 9 in the spring of 2004 with the mërèchi text, Thinking About Winter.

Note: The Asha'ille text has not been updated yet to reflect the spelling reform that occurred after the relay.

[2] Winter is a hunting Kegharn, [3] who steals those who are old, sickly, and young.
[4] Winter is a stone, upon which nothing living can survive.
[5] Winter is a merciless beak and sharp talons.

[6] For this reason, we all remember you, [7] the bounding boy who is spring, [8] so you may dance upon the earth.

[10] And flowers will grow from your footsteps.
