Not so long ago, in a faraway land, There lived a maiden named Lebana! She used to ramble with her magic wand, and turned every place into a nirvana. The country dwellers venerated this lady, Not for her beauty, nor her omnipotence, But for her noble doings and her purity, Silhouetted by the untouched … Continue reading The Lost Queen
