virago, as an archaic term, means a woman of strength or spirit; a female warrior.

Strong is the lioness who roars
throughout the fight; knowing it's worth
feasting for vitality's mirth

Stronger is the eagle who soars
incandescently across the sky
towards the light, ever so spry

Stronger still is the mouse who stores
and hides away from thieving crooks
for he's slick, relies not on looks

Strongest are you who pours
emotion in all that you do
fair virago you are ever true

The End
