”Thus sings the she-dragon that guards the seven caves by the sea: 
“My mate shall come riding on the waves. His thundering roar shall fill the earth with fear, and the flames of his nostrils shall set the sky afire. At the eclipse of the moon we shall be wedded, and at the eclipse of the sun I shall give birth to a Saint George, who shall slay me.” 
Thus sings the she-dragon that guards the seven caves by the sea.”
