“Widow in White” by D. M. Larson
I lay in want of sleep
and waited feverishly for the dawn
knowing I'd never sleep.
Then in a rocker
Appeared a widow in white
Knitting a shroud
Humming a silent song
Only she could hear.
Then she turned
And looked into my eyes.
I was drawn closer to her side.
The caring caress of her gentle eyes
Sought to touch the worries of my heart.
But a sudden shudder fell though me
And tossed me into folds of sleep.
Then as the light of dawn approached
I looked again and she was gone.
