Widdershins

My dear and heavenly child,
Now blighted by some sickness unknown…
Or hexed by demons untold,

.

Have you been playing in the wild,
Forgetting to be mild?
Or have you skipped prayers,
Before your eyes blurred?

.

I know not what caused such a bitter fate,
Something that even I, cannot alleviate.

.

The lord has abandoned our souls!

.

Men yell blasphemous words,
Comparing us both to witches and ghouls,
And other things I wish I had never heard…

.

And so,
During one foggy twilight,
In this forsaken forest,
I lost all hope for light,
To one day again be blessed,
In the Lord’s might…

.

Toward the darkness I shall go!
It shall be so.

.

I brought my offspring to the old well,
Where it is said an ancestral imp dwells,
And begged for her to be relieved from her pain:

.

“Not unless there is nothing for me to gain”,
Replied the hellish reptile…

.

“I have nothing to spare,
Oh lord of putrid waters,
But my now motionless soul,
Which I think would be fair.
For me it is over,
Take me to your horrid lair,
That lies deep down the whirlpool,
And save my daughter,
Cure her sickness forever!”

For a moment he pondered,
Then his hairy hands he wavered,
And my child was mended,
And for her, I felt no longer tormented…

.

Within the well I was weightily invited,
Where many like him abounded,
And was then devoured alive,
In their murky hive,
Where I still dive,
Dead.

-Beldam, 128 yf
