Cameo Shadow


Back view of a woman  wearing a black gown

Forsake me, but I will keep

A cameo onyx and silver

Nestled among sheets

In my oaken chest

Then your shadow will not stray

From the foot of my bed, you

With your white face

And charcoal brow

Only remember me in donning

Your gown like a night river

And whisper in passing

A word for me
