Sleeping Beauty 1: Spurned

The silver leaves and golden flowers bloom

All overgrown with ivy and with moss

The warping crack, a splitting of the loom

Long past its throes resounded with her loss

Now grey vines stretch across dull, crumbling walls

The rooks may gather, laughing, at the gate

And something sounds of malice in their calls

As, lingering, they guard the ceaseless wait

I came to brave the thorned rose growing wild

I came to beg the ghosts for her release

But found her bitter revenant was a child

Condemned to ply the thread and know no peace

I'd thought to find her blissful in repose

But over where none live, her briar grows
