When We Two Parted

Written by George Gordon, Lord Byron

  • On August 3, A news post at the Halo Insider section of Halo3.com was 'overwritten', and replaced with the message quoted below - a modified version of Lord Byron's "When We Two Parted"

<<overwrite granted>>
<<content updated>>

When we  two parted
In silence and tears,
 Half broken-heart ed,
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy  cheek  and cold,
Colder thy ki ss;
 Truly th at hour foretold
Sorro w to this!

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow;
It felt like the w arning
Of what I feel now.
Th y vows are all broken,
And light is  thy fame:
I  hear thy name spoken
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine  ear;
A shudder comes  o'e r me -
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee
Who knew thee too well:
Long, long shall I rue thee
Too deepl y to tell.

In secret we met:
In silence I grie ve
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee? -
With silence and tears.

 Or better I'll  look
And find you away,
Mistaken in jungle?
 My heart labors stayed?
Long weeks though were hidden.
In  Amazon's folds;
The formula's secrets,
Love's story  now told.

  • The final stanza is a new stanza, not existing in the original poem.
  • Note oddly placed spaces within the text.
  • When the letters appearing after each misplaced space are lined together in order, it reads:
THECASTAWAYTHEORYVOLMAN
  • When following the clue "In Amazon's folds" and searching for Castaway Theory at Amazon.com, a book by Jonas Volman is listed, called The Castaway Theory
