Reclusive rhymester ruminates
Alone within emotional wilderness

Ghost of Harriet Harris doth not countenance monetary largesse
After about fifty years as married wife

On par to manage joyful course
Approach to live without remorse

Rain on a rainy day
In a stormy array
Witness the weather play

Works a hollow affair

Scars tell well
Just how you dwell

Each war ends
Battle scars tend

Fight to win
Face loss unseen

Dare your lot
Face your time slot

Each trial brings
Rupture that flings

Scars like signs
Show what aligns

Fight once more
As courage spores

Wear each scar
Tough faith on par
