Earthwizard's Realms of Faërie

		Queen of Amazons
	Amazon her scar to bare, 
	maza witch without the barley snare:
	the wounded nipple tells it all:
	blood red hair, the mark of life, 
	the blood to tell the tale of light:
	know them well those Queens of old -
	Hippolyte, Phentesilea, Myrine, Omphale:
	those fierce women of the tribes, 
	keepers of the threefold way:
	measuring the power of sex and death and moon:
	alone among her kind she defends the honor bound;
	her arrows straight and sure, 
	she slays all men who would harm her, 
	until the man who is her soul
	walks free in her own light to know:
	he waits until her call: not one ounce moves, 
	until this Queen of Amazons speaks to him:
	and in her eye so cold and pure, 
	she pierces him with spirit light all-knowing;
	and if this man is true, his mind unbound, 
	his heart of gold: she takes him in
	she breaks the foal before he rides
	her armored grace into the night;
	for she is the mighty Queen of Amazons!
