Her voice -- that was very like the knight
Clorinda's -- made her deceit easier:
Who might think that armed on horseback
Is one of the other harmless women?
So the gatekeeper immediately obeys
And with her two servants, she leaves.
For safety's sake they start riding down
The valley on a long and crooked path.
When she sees herself in a solitary
And low place, she slows down a little
Since the first risks have been left behind
And nobody should stop her presently.
Now however she minds things that
She had not thought about earlier,
And now it seems to be very dangerous
To reach the Camp with such a mask on.
