Great women from art, literature & myth

I can see them now
Approaching on their chariots
They ride into war
Ready to administer their mark upon men.
Odin’s charges,
Warrior maidens of light,
Tell me, who will fight alongside the great god?
Who will see the battle at the end of the world?
She beckons me now,
Freyja, the mighty mistress of the slain.
She crowns me victorious,
She takes my armour,
Retains my sword
And guides me onwards to Asgard

Beautiful. Adding bits as I can - working f/t is consuming! xx J Thinking of you - all is well (don't worry).

I'm glad to hear you're okay, yeah, I remember the days of working full time (I most likely will be again very soon). Take care.
