Lucian the Great

Little Ghost

By devils5inc | The Beginning | 19 Sep 2020

I knew her for a little ghost

            That in my garden walked;

        The wall is high higher than most

            And the green gate was locked.


        And yet I did not think of that

            Till after she was gone

        I knew her by the broad white hat,

            All ruffled, she had on.


        By the dear ruffles round her feet,

            By her small hands that hung

        In their lace mitts, austere and sweet,

            Her gown's white folds among.


        I watched to see if she would stay,

            What she would do and oh!

        She looked as if she liked the way

            I let my garden grow!


        She bent above my favourite mint

            With conscious garden grace,

        She smiled and smiled there was no hint

            Of sadness in her face.


        She held her gown on either side

            To let her slippers show,

        And up the walk she went with pride,

            The way great ladies go.


        And where the wall is built in new

            And is of ivy bare

        She paused then opened and passed through

            A gate that once was there.
