Sibylla of Glyndmere, Award of the Orion

Sight comes to those who seek
Strength woven of finest thread
A riddle from the sleepless leaf
Open hands with meat and bread

We Nigel Rex and Adrielle Regina
Have heard of the generous works
Of Lady Sibylla of Glyndmere
Creating feasts, weaving trim
And serving her barony.

For the skill she brings to this Kingdom
We do bestow upon her
The Award of the Orion

Done this 14th day of November
Anno Societatis 44
At the Ealdormere Fall Fair
In Our canton of Bryniau Tywynnog.

Wording, calligraphy and illumination by THL Asa Gormsdottir
Motif based on 7th century Irish metalwork (Hunterston and Tara annular brooches and Ardagh chalice)

Calligraphy hand based on the Lindisfarne Gospels (8th century)
