The seaport lying on the isle of Oriab;

Being a mighty city.

There is a canal which goes under the city

In a tunnel with granite gates;

Leading to the inland lake of Yath.

 

Parts of the city are built of bricks

Resembling the ancient ruins

On Yath's further shore.

The beacons on either side of the harbor

Are named Thon and Thal.

 

The lava-gatherers climb Mount Ngranek,

But not too high, might they fall;

To get bits of volcanic stone;

Still not reaching out to the gods.

 

The city is ruled by a congress

Of retired sea captains and traders;

Determining both laws and punishments.

 

Tales of the sunken city

Six nights out of Baharna

Are told in the taverns of Lhosk.
