Sample text

Adesso nell'ora santificata la parola del potere è pronunciata; e la notte è spezzata... Gawen s'irrigidì, sforzandosi di sentire le parole, poi un sus-sulto sfuggito a qualcuno lo indusse a guardare verso l'alto: sul-la sommità del Tor era fiorita una luce, una sommessa e tremo-lante lingua di fiamma che in un momento venne seguita da un'altra e poi da una terza. Le fanciulle mormorarono fra loro con meraviglia, indicando quel chiarore, ma Gawen rimase in-vece in attesa del verso successivo del canto.

Poi Caillean tornò a fissarlo e lui si tro-vò ad alzarsi in piedi, come se lo sguardo di lei avesse contenuto una sfida. «Io rimarrò qui», disse. «E lo farò anch'io», aggiunse una voce, accanto a lui. Sussultando per la sorpresa, Gawen si girò e trovò accanto a sé Sianna, che aveva ereditato il talento di sua madre nel muo-versi silenziosamente. Mentre tutt'intorno anche le altre pro-mettevano a loro volta di restare, parlando già dei lavori di rico-struzione, Gawen si protese e strinse la mano di Sianna nella propria.

Ter-ribilmente conscio di quel violento rossore, nascose il volto nel-l'erba fresca, senza peraltro poter evitare di avvertire l'umida fragranza dei capelli di Sianna e l'odore intenso della pelle roz-zamente conciata della sua gonna. » sussurrò d'un tratto lei, dandogli una gomitata nel fianco e indicando. Una cerva stava avanzando con passo misurato ed elegante sull'erba, bilanciandosi con grazia su zoccoli che sembravano quasi troppo piccoli per reggere il suo peso, e qualche passo più indietro procedeva un cerbiatto già abbastanza cresciuto, le cui macchie infantili cominciavano a scomparire nel pelo invernale sempre più folto.
