Soon, she approached the Scald’s head;
Towards that one, Erdewyn sped,
Meaning to kill
That one with a will,
And leave that one clad all in red.

Instead, when she opened a path
Through the guards, she directed her wrath
At the Scald’s head,
That figure of dread.
She’s wash that one in anger’s bath.

She did not the guards all dispatch;
There were some she did not catch
Who fled far away,
And she did not stay
To hide them in death’s endless stash.

It likely took longer to do
Than ever the old tellers knew--
But she soon had done
What she had begun,
And she meant to carry it through.

But Erdewyn danced through the flame
Of each, and left each with no name
In story or song,
And it took not long
For her--or so the tales proclaim.

She danced with each partner in turn,
As each of the guard thought to earn
Some semblance of fame,
Regard, or acclaim,
By being who her did then burn.

Soon, the guard came into sight,
And, not long after, the fight
Did once again start,
And each played a part
To strive to set things wrong--or right.

Erdewyn stood in the road
And hoped that her presence would bode
Ill for the Scald
Who worse things were called,
That she their ire would goad.

What happened before mattered not;
No struggle for blame to allot
Will actually matter--
Let them idly natter
Who will not do what they ought.

Seeing the dust of their feet
Rise into the air, she to meet
The oncoming band
Took up a strong stand--
She knew that she must them defeat.
