THE SINNER, by            
First Line: They whispered when she passed - gave knowing looks
Last Line: It seemed as if she trod on holy ground.


They whispered when she passed -- gave knowing looks
That hinted vastly more than what was said;
Inferring that her past held darkest nooks --
Her reputation was a tattered shred.

And yet, she walked among them calm, serene,
Like one who from deep suffering had found
An inner peace -- a staff on which to lean --
It seemed as if she trod on holy ground.
