THE CHARWOMAN, by            
Last Line: Spent dozing in the sun.
Subject(s): Old Age

Her form is forward bent
From years of stooping down.
She is a lonely ghost
Haunting a dismal town.

Day after day she goes
To her ignoble task,
Her face is sad and dull,
A somber, withered mask.

Yet she was once a girl
With laughter lifted face;
Supple and straight and slim,
Hers was a sapling's grace.

And once she dreamed of love,
A home that love had won,
Of comfortable old age
Spent dozing in the sun.
