STILLBIRTH

STILLBIRTH


Pregnant and overdressed
Lazily dozing o’er the riverbank pond
Autumn trees, fat with  leaves caressed
By the frost , every frond


Ready to be borne out of sight
By the river’s  waves  aglow
Like Roman shields burnished bright
Facing their vanquished Sabine foe


. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . 
Note
Sabines were a people living near ancient Rome, and the Sabine women 
were kidnapped en masse by Roman soldiers, to increase the  population of Rome.
