Spirit of of the Moment is a nightborne poem and was performed by First Arcanist Thalyssra during her poetry competition against Lor'themar Theron in Suramar City after the Fourth War.[1]

The poem

The whole night sees us,

wretched, beautiful,

beneath those untold, unblinking eyes

we dance, we drink

we give body to the watchful heavens.

Becoming hands and feet,


Here I am—take my fingers to grasp the goblet,

Take my lips to breathe your first air.

Take my feet and learn to twirl and fall—

Tumble and I shall catch you,

Laugh and I shall laugh with you,

Until all of our shining eyes are stars,

And we see each other—one cosmos;

One heart.
