The woman in white walks in and out of the patches of graves.
She looks for the children that might be there.
Though she met with a bloody end from an affair,
She hopes to make good by helping those more than fair.
Sometimes you see her in her white gown,
Cradling dead babies and hugging kids that come around.
If you see her, leave a thoughtful gift,
or else you’ll see her temperament begin to shift.

A woman came to the window
as my son played between the glow of moonlight
and the dim light of a lamp.

that held justice in balance
but instead, sought further disturbance
for the lady-dead.
Her lonely end found some afterlife joy,
When the three men met with sudden end,
and eternity within a black void.
