The Haggard Crone

A Haggard Crone
With bloodless fist
The rheumy eye
And tottering list

Her argent hair
Bleached white and dry
Her wavering voice
Her silent cry

A shambling walk
A sideways glance
A familiar gait
St Vitus Dance

A stalk in a sea
Of swaying reeds
A raft of want
And screaming needs

Towers above
Blind walls around
Pass by her peers
Look to the ground

Time’s rigid embrace
To speed the way
A blurry moment
Each passing day

And so it ends
The curtains drop
A brief applause
Bother not to stop

Many are they
Ghosts of the Night
Dried up husks
Leeched bones of white

The Haggard Crone
