"Ashe's Limerick" is a poem of Ashe's, that she recites to the students at Tentir at the beginning of Honor's Paradox.[1]

In the dedication, P. C. Hodgell gives credit for the poem to Paul Howat.[2]

There was a young randon named Ashe
Renowned for her battlefield dash
Struck down only once
By some Central Land runt
She limped evermore with panache.
