The Beauty of Their Royal Majesties Retainers

From EastKingdomWiki

Written by Toki Redbeard in Drottkvaett in December, A.S. 39 in praise of the ladies who served Queen Svava Thorgeirsdottir.

Wrath-hot war-queen rages,
roaming the fierce spear-grab.
Wise her women, patient,
waiting with hearts flaming.
Wise her women, shining,
wearing sterling beauty.
Hearth-hot maids, deep-minded,
holding keys and wisdom.
