Heat Treated Cold Worked

 

 

From The Crucible Of Rhetoric

 

We Poured Forth

 

Fiery And Unformed

 

Dull Siege, Arduous Marches

 

Flashed Off The Dross

 

Hammer Blow Of Battle

 

Long Furnace Of March

 

Shaped Blade To Need

 

Quenched Cold, Examined

 

Still Far From Perfect

 

Back To The Forge Sent

 

Hammered Anew By

 

Long March, Sharp Battle

 

Then Plunged Into

 

Cold, Oh So Cold

 

Shriek Of Contraction

 

Toughening Tension

 

A New Smith To The Work Comes

 

Strange Of Tongue

 

Sharp Of Manner

 

Final Shape To Give

 

To The New Blade

 

"The Continental Line"
