and we are known by all people.
Sonnets and tales of me are centuries old,
but new ones are being written.
My kin may be beautiful, graceful, and lithe;
sometimes they are sturdy, strong, and mature.
You may guess who my kin are but I am known as the greatest of my kind.
I am so great that even the underworld reveres me.
My consciousness and being are beyond that of a mere man or woman,
I am known to keep company with a messenger squirrel,
a gnarly dragon,
and a fierce eagle.
