Rest in peace

May all those that knew him honour his death, and for those that did not, may you know how great a man he was. R.I.P Highborn Sycath (James Melton). You will be missed greatly by all of us on The Lost Glade.

Rest peacefully James. I've had a hard time coming here since I first read the news. Goodbye is all I can say.

I just read the news on Warvault, I can't believe it. Sycath, you probably forgot me, but I always remembered your name.



Goodbye James, and may you rest in peace.

the burning fires
on Takamatoyama,
which [punning on the name]
strong and brave men stand facing
taking and holding their birchwood bows in hand
and holding hunting arrows in their hands,
[those fires] which burn the spring fields
until [one could] see them as field fires
[to clear out brush],
when I asked what [they were],
as the tears the person
coming on the road cries
fall like light rain
and he stops and stands,
his white paper-mulberry clothing
getting muddy
[this is] what he tells me:
"why, oh why do you ask [such a thing]
[so] pointlessly?!
when I hear [your question]
only my crying voice cries uncontrollably
as I tell you [what they are]
my heart is so pained
it is the light from the torches
of the august outing [=funeral procession]
of the prince of the divine emperor
that is shining so much."

is the autumn bush-clover
around the fields of Takamato
now blooming and scattering
in vain, I wonder?
though there is no one to see it

the road going to the area
of the fields of Mikasayama
is it really so overgrown and falling to pieces?
but it [has]n't be[en] [such] a long time
[since I was last here]

autumn bush-clover
around the fields of Takamato
please don't scatter
as a memento of the emperor
I want to fondly recollect [him]
while I look [at you]

the road going through the area
of the fields of Mikasayama
has it really fallen to pieces so much?
but it [has]n't be[en] [such] a long time
[since I was last here]

I will honor you James, no parting is eternal we only say goodbye so we may meet again.

Rest In Piece



Though I did not know him I too shall honour him.

Without Highborn Sycath this community woul not have been possible.

I have only recently joined this forum but I must say it is one of the best I have ever used and for that I thank him.

Good bye, friend I never knew,

I only joined this forum because of my friendship with CV and you James, but now that both of you have gone there is little reason to stay. Four and a half years of friendship will never be forgotten I shall think back on the good times we had and shall keep them close till the day I die.

Goodbye James I will miss you, old friend. . . Thomas BR Write.

I'm sorry James if this is a little late, but I guess it's never too late to say Goodbye. It's good to see the James legacy, the Lost Glade is still growing... If only you were here to see this James... Farewell old friend :sad:.

Although I never met him, I can tell from all these touching posts that James was well liked and well respected. Rest well, brother.
