Poem: She Walked Through the Shadows

Not IK

She Walked Through the Shadows


She walked through the shadows
in the wood in the late day.
The warm air felt heavy
as she walked on her way,
the warm air felt heavy
with the promise of rainfall.
She walked through the shadows
as she went on her way.

She carried a sad secret
in the woods in the late day;
she carried a letter
as she walked on her way,
she carried a letter
to make a mother’s tears fall.
She walked through the shadows
as she went on her way.

He never would come home
through the woods in the late day;
he never would join her
as she walked on her way.
He never would join her
as she walked, spring, summer or fall.
She walked through the shadows
as she went on her way.

She heard the thunder rumble
in the woods in the late day.
The thunderstorm neared her
as she walked on her way.
Did it sound like the cannon
that made her own true love fall?
She walked through the shadows
as she went on her way.
