The Crooked Path

The Crooked Path





Alone I walk the crooked path

A heavy basket upon my back

Through moonlit groves to home at last

Guided by dimming stars above my head

Through the valley and around the bend

With eager eyes do I see the gate ahead

My garden beckons while my dog does growl

Behind me lays the farmerís hedge

Beyond the hill does my cottage stand

Away from village lights and prying eyes

I work a craft they cannot understand

Heavy basket goes into potting shed

Herbs to be hung with morning light

It is the stew pot that I seek tonight

Dog gets fed and cow is checked

I lay me down upon a lonely bed

I dare to dream of a village life lived

With a family and a loving husband

But the life I lead is a road for one

In a creaking home blasted with cold drafts

Alone I walk the crooked path

    I should mention this is a combo of autobiography and also a nod at wise women and cunning folk in fairy tale and folk lore.
