Once, Margherita decided to build a mini castle for mice. She worked all day and night to make this little castle. It had 3 turrets, crenellations, and a draw bridge. The only problem was that she made it out of cheese, and she forgot that mice like cheese.

"Minis don't count."

Cornelius Meriläinen

Adorned, a bracer gleaming white,
Unleashed slivers grant false night,
Enshroud the sky like dragon’s flight,
She carries forth the Storm.

Crimson scarves flank about,
Sharpened blades and bodies stout,
They serve, protect, their souls devout,
To us, The Princess, borne

She takes her place upon the throne,
Her grace, her wisdom, all is shown,
In love, She rules Her treasured home
Fair Queen of Ansteorra.

The Soldiers’ skill decides the fight,
Scholars teach, their minds alight
While courtiers serve to Her delight,
All talents wished to render.

They join today upon the field,
Laying bear, no wish to yield,
Seeking a blade, the need to wield,
To serve as Her defender.

For no honour hold they higher,
Than place themselves within the fire,
Protect Her whom doth all inspire,
Fair Queen of Ansteorra.

And so I join them in the lysts,
Deadly dance, feverish tryst,
Seeking out a moment blissed,
Each time my blade strikes true.

With sturdy shield and flourished cloth,
Main-gauche and swords cutting swath,
Rivals left wanting, feeling wroth,
I kneel for your review.

My love and life I give to thee,
In the fray or bended knee,
Champion by your decree,
Fair Queen of Ansteorra.
