Mourning MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   for Mielikki Ankesanamen (Skipperdee)

Quit your walk beside me,

your silent thudding steps,

your friendly inquisitions,

for I must walk alone.

As the kestrel to the mouse,

so the sparrow to the worm,

as my fear to my sorrow,

I must stand alone.

For she was sitting squat,

her eyes sunken to see no more,

her limbs shriveled and useless,

her shell reduced to chalky dullness.

Leave me to stand,

as the crumbling tower stands,

for I must bear my grief alone,

as she bore her death alone.
