Beautiful Haunt

4th Place Jordan Barr

Old woman so pale with face gaunt
Stands amongst the grey of the morn,
Bound by spell; a beautiful haunt.

The passage of death does not daunt
Colorful-wisdom; knowledge-borne,
Old woman so pale with face gaunt.

To be free is all we could want
Although life is more than forlorn,
Bound by spell; a beautiful haunt.

Death is just a lighthearted jaunt
On a wooded path with many thorns,
Old woman so pale with face gaunt.

Rich wrinkles does her face flaunt
Although free from hate and quaint scorn,
Bound by spell; a beautiful haunt.

Such hope we have won't be for naught,
This grey pink-morning does our eyes adorn,
Old woman so pale with face gaunt,
Bound by spell; a beautiful haunt.
