ODOP: Old Danilo (12)

Vasilisa escaped, gnawing off her arm
That was bound to the bed and then
Reattaching it, sneaking right underfoot
All those men. Reaching the yard she
Hid in a brown sack, and as he left
One old robber thrust a knife
Into that sack, wary man, but she pulled
It from her knee and wiped off
The blood so he thought nothing there, for
Vasilisa was a very clever girl,
And not the type to scare too easily.
