Home they brought her warrior dead:
 
She nor swooned, nor uttered cry:
 
All her maidens, watching, said,
 
‘She must weep or she will die.’
 
 
 
Then they praised him, soft and low,
 
Called him worthy to be loved,
 
Truest friend and noblest foe;
 
Yet she neither spoke nor moved.
 
 
 
Stole a maiden from her place,
 
Lightly to the warrior stepped,
 
Took the face-cloth from the face;
 
Yet she neither moved nor wept.
 
 
 
Rose a nurse of ninety years,
 
Set his child upon her knee—
 
Like summer tempest came her tears—
 
‘Sweet my child, I live for thee.’ }}
