Why didn't she show us?
That's bogus.
To have to be dead
before you are read
the frog by the bog
might have grown into a hog
if unfettered
she let us pet her
why was she afraid
of what she had made-
this little maid-
or worse
she couldn't have been more terse
were we unworthy even of her snake?
It's too much to take
but it was her choice
to be absent a voice
that can sing to us now
I hope somehow
from another place
which holds her in grace
