287. Witch Sisters
One was a good witch, the other quite the disgrace.
The kind sister was destined to live with a disfigured face,
A twist of fate gave to the evil witch all the beauty and grace.
The ugly witch forced out of Jotunheim, made to live in a cave,
But the pretty sister was allowed to stay in the Jotun' s enclave.
The good witch mixed potions, which to others she freely gave,
While the pretty evil one cast spells that would injure and enslave.
Over time all who knew her began to love the ugly, but kind witch,
But the wicked sister, though pretty, was despised as an evil bitch.
Finally the good witch was summoned to Jotunheim and made rich,
While the evil sister was buried alive in the woods in a deep ditch.
The evil witch sister is now cursed, to her grave she is bound,
While the ugly, kind sister, in the Jotun king' s hall can be found.
Jotuns honored the good witch, as their queen she was crowned,
But no one in Jotunheim dares visit the evil witch' s grave mound.
