Author's Note

Sheila Kline
Shareena, Empress of Battle!


As her army of mighty warriors waged battle on a blood thirsty trail,
The queen knew she must defeat the invading enemy to never fail!
A difficult job had to be completed before she would find any rest,
An assignment to train a fresh tribe to become the fighting best.

Angry women fighters united from vast regions of Brittonic lands.
Maidens forsaken in villages pillaged by invading Roman bands,
Abandoned and barren in life without homes, drink, nor food,
Heroically joined SHAREENA, by forging bonds in her sisterhood.

A leader she was, and without question, considered the mightiest,
SHAREENA, EMPRESS OF BATTLE won difficult of war's quest.
Courageously she met arduous enemies and easily scored a win,
Leaving dead and wounded in her wake, they'd battle her not again!

Her prowess was shown as she proved her worth as mighty leader.
She and her tribe of woman warriors marched victoriously together.
Though moments came when she felt it would be the end of her life,
She met each trial in her path by fighting to conquer events of strife!

Legions of war tarried behind her as they killed and destroyed more,
Thus she remained guardian of a tribe trained to build up and restore.
Lives of women now shattered by the ravages of vicious war,
Became meshed with SHAREENA who was out to even the score.

The women who marched with her, grew stronger with passing days,
As she trained them well and tested them in her proven battle ways.
They stopped neither to eat. nor to partake of refreshment of drink,
Continuing on day and night, one's endurance was tested to the brink.

Her band of women proved to be a mighty force, ever moving forth.
Each developed a unique skill to show her sisterhood of worth.
They endured hardships, sacrificed the need to rest, feeling the thrill,
As the wages of pain and torture were equated with every vicious kill.

The end would come as members would join kinship as death's friend.
Yet today if you stop and listen to their cries heard in blowing wind,
You may hear echoes of proud battle talk as they journey on along,
Calling out shouts of "FAITH, HAVE FAITH, a woman warrior's song!

Vibrant visuals. The reader can fight the battles right along side Shareena. An epic poetic tale written by a strong woman making poetic history about a strong woman who fought her way into the pages of literary history. She would be pleased at the way you told her story. You breathed life into her and one could almost hear the cries of a battle being fought as they read. Wonderful penmanship from the mistress of the poetic realm.

I liked this very much I could envision all that (SHAREENA, EMPRESS OF BATTLE) stood for... Wanted to read more, but what a finish this was Sheila Kline... You did well with this...

The women who marched with her, grew stronger with every day,
As she trained them well and tested them in her proven battle ways.
They stopped neither to eat. nor to partake of refreshment of drink,
Continuing on day and night, one's endurance was tested to the brink.
She remembered her goals!

Her band of women proved to be a mighty force, ever moving forth.
Each one developed a unique skill to show her sisterhood of worth.
They endured hardships, sacrified the need to rest, feeling the thrill,
As the wages of pain and tortue were equated with every vicious kill.
She considered not the soul!

The end would come as members would join kinship as death's friend.
Yet today if you stop and listen to their cries heard in blowing winds,
You may hear echoes of proud battle talk as they journey on along,
Calling out shouts of "FAITH, HAVE FAITH, a woman warrior's song!
She remains their fierce leader!

Cries of love..... love with honor, love for family, love for each other rang out
as they marched on!

Whilst I love the heart of this post, the examples of courage and determination and all else you've included, I can't help wondering if there's not a lot of Sheila in the tale - for that is what it is!

Shareena .. what a wonderful name, a mix of shah - master/leader .. and the female softeness of the sound 'eena' or 'ina'. You've created a legend in her name, one that could be carved in stone and discovered way into the future, believed to be true!

Very inventive, Sheila, fun, instructive, skilful.

I agree with Lizanne...the reader does feel like she is fighting the battle along with Shereena. Very artfully done!

I agree with Lizanne, I really like how I feel as if I am fighting right along side of Shareena. As you often do, you have educated me once again on a subject that I knew very little about prior to reading this. As I told you on your last peice, this is something I truly admire about your talents and your creative nature. The ability to tell a story that so many know so little about is amazing, but what is most remarkable is the creative way you do so. Tell ya what, I would follow Shareena's lead anyday! Excellent work Sheila!

Rightly or wrongly, there is something exciting about battle. Yet we know it is horrible. The notion of the heroic fighting woman injects a sexual frisson into the mix. All very confusing! Yet women are now in the thick of it in various dusty places ... and will now be boxing each other at the Olympics. Gulp! I suddenly feel doomed. I enjoyed the romantic headiness of your word charge.

Dear Shiela,

A wonderful write, reflecting the strength of women and the sisterhood of women. Determination and fight has never been a trait lacking in "the fairer sex", and this poem reflects that fact strongly and convincingly.

Very best regards,

Rick
