i see her walking in the cold
is her glow just my creation
in the shadowed streets of this empty town
she strides with determination

her hair is long and dark i think
but her hat is pulled down low
her pace and gait unhurried
her footprints in the snow

i glance across my moonlit room
those sheets like a nest or prison
that lonely figure i loved so well
just smiled at my decision

with trepidation in the dark
a murder of suitors starved
smitten stumbling staggering forth
singing of their scars


as if she heard my observation
she halts and looks my way
the gaggle gasps, the flock it falters
they stand and stare and sway

she turns her head and with a wink
she gestures to the famished
they shiver, hungry, the desperate ones
find all kindness vanished


why that smile as she looked my way
i'll never understand
into the distance of the night
her humbleness so grand

then the moon behind the clouds
leaves her vanished in the dark
as she's gone my heart then twists
lonely futile stark
