Upon a hill, in the realm of Oasis,
Three sisters lived ruling
In perfect harmony. Together, they
Worked together to create utopia.
That all of their loyal subjects
Could enjoy.

The largest of the three, with her
Silken yellow hair, stood tall,
Gathering all underneath her
Her royal robes,
Protecting her sisters and subjects
From the brutal summer sun.

The shortest sister,
Festively bejeweled in earthy tones worked
Feverishly to prepare the roads and defenses.
Craftily, she wove throughout the kingdom,
Cooling and protecting their land
Making sure that the tributaries continue to flourish.

Nimble and thin,
The third sister scrambles from rampart to rampart
And then back down to the ground. Stealing away
The poison and squirreling it away
Magic in her hands, turning what is bad, into
What is good all over again.

Separate, the three sisters would fail,
But together, they succeeded. Each other
With their individual strengths worked
With each other and the
Realm of Oasis flourished,
As three worked together as one.
