Amanda Barker

by
 Henry got me with child, 
Knowing that I could not bring forth life 
Without losing my own.
In my youth therefore I entered the portals of dust.
Traveler, it is believed in the village where I lived That Henry loved me with a husband's love, But I proclaim from the dust That he slew me to gratify his hatred.
