Theory:

She's a lioness; don't mess with her.
She'll not spare you if you're a prankster.
Don't ever try to saw her pride, her self-respect.
She knows how to thaw you, saw you – so beware!
Explanation:
  
In the fourth stanza, the speaker brings out the fierce side of a woman. She says that the woman is as ferocious and wild as a lioness. The speaker warns the readers of the same. She asks people not to mess with her, for they may end up becoming her prey. In the earlier stanzas, we saw that the woman stands for and by her dear ones. However, this stanza shows that she can't be taken for granted.

She is as fierce as a lioness

All the pranksters, be warned! She will never spare you if she learns about your true nature.
 
Also, the speaker further reminds the readers that a woman, like any human, has pride and self-respect. Hence, people should learn to respect her and her emotions. One should never attempt to belittle her pride or self-respect. The speaker hints that failing to do so wouldn't sit well with her; she would either freeze them to death or cut them into pieces. The woman is capable of thawing people with her kindness or sawing them into pieces.
