The Lady in Gloom
Set to weave on an age-old loom
Living within an empty room
Through night and day in same costume
Like a Shallot Lady in gloom.
She looks into a mirror left
As shadows come, and shadows flight
Run her shuttle as they alight
Leaving the loom, creeping in fright
Reveals the entire slender weft.
