The Rose Watered With Blood is a poem written by the remembrancer Eurykidas DeMartos about the Flag-Captain Lotara Sarrin during the Great Crusade. [1]


"And worshipful foes, awarded medals carved upon flesh,

In scars of shrapnel and sourceless fire,

This flock,

Her flock,


Within great drifting tombs of silent enemy iron.

A queenly shadow cast,

Against the dappled theatre of eternal fusion,

Across the tide of our eternal ocean,

And here,

Enshrined in this royal steel,

We carve her invocation. "
