Title: Ode To Aurra, by Hondo Ohnaka

Rating: T

Era: The Clone Wars, shortly after Aurra Sing and Hondo Ohnaka meet again

Disclaimer: I am not George Lucas and this fanfiction set in his Star Wars makes no profit. Good thing Hondo and Aurra don't know that.

Summary: Hondo muses musically.

A/N: Inspired by the lilting quality of Aurra Sing's name, this was born. The folk tune, "Aura Lea," is the source, although humming along to Elvis Presley's "Love Me Tender," will bring the same mood to the work, as "Love Me Tender" is a derivative adaptation of "Aura Lea." Links are found in my ffn profile to these songs, including a really sappy one for "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" by The King. It just seemed to fit.

OoOoOoOoOo

Long ago, we had a fling

And we enjoyed ... dates.

To inter-species sex I cling,

Cont'ry to the Fates.

I kissed you,

You kissed me,

All our greeds fulfilled.

Then you gained a new career

And I stayed stockstill.

[]

Your antenna spoke to you

Whisp'ring 'life's work change.'

In the fall you left me for

A bounty hunter's range.

Aurra Sing!

Aurra Sing!

Maid of long red hair!

We were pirates in the spring

With blasters ev'rywhere.

Our pad is no more

Some called it a shack.

Mama said you would return

Now she's gone; you're back.

Aurra Sing!

Aurra Sing!

Maid of long red hair!

We were pirates in the spring

With blasters ev'rywhere.

OoOoOoOoOoOo

The End.
