She stood firm – a blaze in her eye,
‘That’s as far as you go, or else you die!
‘Your words sting like a thousand spears,
When worse words the Wixen hears!
‘You stand here by my mercy,
For I could throw you deep under sea.’
‘Undoubtedly, I am truly in your debt,
Though I still do wish that we’d never met.
‘For you were to me an elixir of life –
A blessed curse paid for with much strife.
‘We shall part ways as the winds blow,
Fair weathers to you, wherever you go.’
