 he paused from his dreadful task,
and a thought struck him.

In its centre were
 two mules, and on one of these
mules sat a woman.

 Yellow Devil, that once had
slept beneath your roof?

 and the sacrifice, and sit
in the place of kings.

Then turning, he clasped
 Leonard in his arms, kissed him
and blessed him also.

It was she who must
 save Leonard, for he could do
nothing to save her.
