Queen Eider looks over her land, it's early summer, she sees the dwellers arriving, nesting season is here. She rolls up the pink sleeves, protects her head with a reflective crown, grabs her stick and spreads her wings. She walks the land in search of valuables that she collects into her cape as she hoists a flag for every bird she finds. Above her the Arctic tern sees its reflection in her. Governing the nests with care and respect, protecting the dwellers, they are familiar.
