Sing these songs till I die
she said herself
but did not die

wrote
another
whole career of songs but did not
die

sang those
songs till she could die
but did not
die

so she went on and
sang songs old
songs new
in wait

but did not die
Just one last song
she said herself
then go along

and she sang it
over
over over
o windowed heart of howling snow and sorrow

and after all
this time she was ready
for it
