Secrets of the Aged Elm

i caught a glimpse of her swinging high from the old elm
in the field on grandpa’s farm
her black booted feet swaying back and forth
as her skirts fluttered anxiously in protest
like scalded moths
the moonlight warming her cold ankles
her head bent in prayer
forever
exiting before sharing her secrets
leaving us only to speculate
the rationale of her final choice
to leave us behind
