"A WOMAN WAITS"




You galloped out late last night.

A woman waits.

You straddled a black stallion

riding into a snowy night.

A woman waits.

The snow is mounting,

frosting all shutters

& blocking each door.

A woman sits on the window seat

& as the snow falls

a woman watches and waits.

At 21 a woman waits.

At 31 a woman waits.

At 41 a woman does not wait.
