Keterangan Peraduan

Hello everyone!
I need a 4-line stanza, written as a magic spell, preferably with the 2nd and 4th line rhyming. This will be used in a children's book, ages 5-9. It needs to be an intriguing little spell that will be used whenever the character (family name 'Amser') needs to be at any given place at any given time in the past. This spell has been used for centuries within this family.

The 4-line stanza must include the following information (in any order you wish):

1. "Ars Longa, Vita Brevis." (exactly as written)
2. "I am an Amser." (or variation thereof; but name 'Amser' must remain the same)
3. "Take me to [ANY PLACE], [ANY YEAR]." (or variation thereof; but place and year must be variable, meaning, I want to be able to put any place and year in these slots)
4. (anything you think would fit in your created stanza)

Other information about the story of the book you might find useful:
-time travel
-protector

Again, the above is in NO SPECIFIC order, but only represents the items I wish to be included in the stanza/ spell. I'm looking forward to what you guys come up with! Please let me know if there should be any questions!

Good luck!

    Hi there, I have the contest details and your comments below - thankyou for all the information. Could you please clarify this: what is the heritage of the Amser family? For example, is it American Indian, Nordic, Australian Aboriginal etc? Also, is your protagonist currently living in the USA? (I see that you are based there). I note the Latin inclusion (from the original Greek) - so can I assume it is some kind of European heritage? Will help with the flavour of the piece.

      The main character will be a young boy, around age 7. He is the youngest of the Amser family. All male characters of this family can travel through time. The spell is used whenever they wish to travel back in time to a certain place and time. Hope this helps, SommaBaby13!

    Thank you for posting this contest. I hope you truly find what you are looking for. As a writer I know finding the right thing can be frustrating sometimes, and it takes a little outside influence to flip that switch. #37 is my first entry. Best of luck in your search.
