Many tales were recounted then
of the Iron Princess who rode
at the head of her army,
and some were true
and some were not.
She was a mighty witch,
she could take no wound,
demons marched
in the ranks behind her;
she covered her face
because one look from it
would scald with fire or
turn to granite or melt as with
acid any who beheld it,
though others said
she was so beautiful
no man could watch her
and not lose his wits,
and that one of her smiles
could darken the moon
and one frown could kill the sun.
