Rise up Men of Gwir!
Let sackcloth be your dress
And ashes your bread!
Behold!
The Harvest is gone,
Stripped away
Never more to be seen.
Vast was the field,
A sea of gold flowing and ebbing
In the gentle breeze;
Then the sun beat down
And the folds above withheld their drink;
No thirst was slaked that day.
The ripened wheat whithered
Shrinking in upon itself
Until not even stubble could be seen.
Then did great cracks rend the earth
While contending winds stripped the soil.
Weep, for this field is no more!
The Undecided have decided
And are no more.
No longer will their names be called out;
No memory contains them.
Mourn, Men of Truth,
And let ashes coat your hair
For the Harvest is lost!

This was written kinda like Nate was. I just had a very strong dream, woke up, and wrote about it. I saw a field of wheat get sucked down into itself. Then the soil dried and cracks and huge dust clouds blew over it. Very wierd, symbolic dream.
