ODOP: Old Danilo (13)

They set off, and she ran like an arrow
To Ivan, cutting straight through his windings
In no time. All she had heard she told him.
He asked her to wed him and she said yes,
“But first your duty, then mine.” He wished her
Speed, as well he might, for the way was
Longer in the dark, a certain lit cottage
In the woods more inviting, but she scorned
To comfort herself on the path home, when
Mess and noise awaited her rolled-up sleeves.
