Witch in a torn lace smock
Goblin with spider-cobbed hair
Dryad hiding among fallen graves
      I saw her once
where the long grasses flow
      tending bouquets
      sweeping the weeds
The wind gathered about her
      a skirt of brittle leaves
as she floated through the yard
turning down the dirt beds
for every long-term guest
