A girl walks into the night.
She wears a long white gown.
Her hair is silky, her eyes are saphire
and her head decored with a crown.
The princess she is, of a lonely land
and into the woods she goes
to find a way to save her men
and their women from eternal woes.
In the woods she hopes
to find a witch who put a spell on all,
and now they kneel with knees in mud.
and wait for death to call.
A princess, brave and pretty as sun
she bids the woman of spell
to help her save her doomed men
and what is to do, she shall.
So the evil witch, no mercy she had
and asked the girl to stay.
And then she freed the men from mud
but kept them all away.
The brave and fair could not be saved
and soldiers did what they can.
Then, sad and slowly retired away
And their queen they never saw again.
