Pearl Necklace 2
[by S. David] [art by Barbara Listenik]

Our Lady of Sorrows,
She fades still more
As the days pass
Through her centuries.
Gifts from the Goddess
Do not ease her pain.
The offerings of Angels
Do not bring relief.
Paler than the pearls
Of the necklace one
Angel brought, she has
Lost even the colour
Of life, she has sunk
Beyond despair. Love
Has left her, Death
Awaits her and she, him.
