They took her out in darkness
on the orders of another,
and burned her as a witch
although she was a mother.

Cries of the children
rang out among the trees;
as the woman, who was a mother,
fell down upon her knees.

They dragged her by the arms;
her knees a skuffled red
then dropped a heavy noose
over her helpless head.
I wrote this a while ago and I don’t remember why.
