Spring, she will come

There’s a patch of woods along the road,
That leads from my house into town.
Through winter I barely took notice,
Of woods draped in a widow’s gown.

The garden of Greta Jones

Green is the garden of Greta Jones,
Who lives in a house that creaks and moans,
On the edge of town, where she lives alone,
And feeds her garden on the flesh and bone,
Of the village children, who with sticks and stones,
Taunt the spinster known as Greta Jones.
