Fate of the Banshee


Kate Hill

With her touch
of gentle chill,
she drains the heart
of life and will
and warns the soul
of tears to come.

With her lips
of silver dust,
she kisses away
all love and lust
and warns the soul
of fears to come.

With her wailing,
ghostly threats,
the darkest fairy,
crier of death,
warns the soul
of lonely years to come.
