"Like a maiden's head so deathly still,
Cold and quiet, yet not ill.
Her long tresses, skyward lie,
Hair that burns when it is dry.
Food to man and creature's lair,
Name both her and her hair."


The maiden is a rock on a lake bed. Her hair is seaweed.

I think the category should have been 'riddle'. Tough one!

That is probably why it says "Maiden's head" and not "Maidenhead"
