(408-418)

  • Venturing closer,his talon was raised to attack BeowulfWhere he lay on the bed; he was bearing inWith open claw when the alert hero’sComeback and armlock forestalled him utterly.The captain of evil discovered himselfIn a handgrip harder than anything  He had ever encountered in any manOn the face of the earth. Every bone in his bodyQuailed and coiled, but he could not escape. (744-753)
