Faith held in secret,
her father dealt Death's sharp blow.
Vengeance in lightning.

Thunder and weather
held in Nago Shengo's realm,
icon of Barbara.

Saint Barbara is the patron saint of workers associated with risk. These include artillery gunners, miners, masons, military engineers, pilots, and... mathematicians.
