Engraved In Stone

For the greatest sorceress, cursed,

These million little stars in acidic water 

Death came like a speck of dust

And a snowstorm in mid-July

Tears flow like an endless river

Shallowed voices in rejoice,

Rejoicing in treacherous numbers

Only the heathens mourned her

“No harm done when you see tricks,

Unadulterated scandal with the witch”

Is what they all say about her

When she had passed on 

Left a message from beyond the grave

Etched letters on greystones:

“Sun don’t shine on the dark hearted

Wolves don’t howl on the full one.”
