 Verses to accompany a portrait of Cromwell

Bright Martial Maid, Queen of the frozen zone, 
The northern pole supports thy shining throne. 
Behold what furrows age and steel can plough; 
The helmet's weight oppressed this wrinkled brow. 
Through fate's untrodden paths I move; my hands 
Still act my free-born people's bold commands; 
Yet this stern shade, to you submits his frowns, 
Nor are these looks always severe to crowns.
