226. Odin' s Maidens
Than the creature that floats on water all bright.
An avian masterpiece dressed in white feather,
But under this coat awaits a warrior in leather.
With a face of great beauty, and curvaceous in form,
These battle hardened warriors strike like a storm.
Graceful birds when they are swimming in feathered wear,
Maidens of Odin, who choose the dead with great care.
They can entice with a wink, can lure with a smile,
If lucky they may stay, and be yours for a while.
But when the battle begins, and the warriors fall,
These proud Valkyries answer only to Odin's call !
