She arrived late at night.

The clouds had gathered, and her life had darkened.  There was a storm coming.

It was her sister’s house.

Built in another age, she hoped it would be the refuge her soul needed.

She climbed to the widow’s walk. The gentle moonlight was soothing.

Turning to go back down the stairs, she felt again how weary she was.

In the muted glow of the porch light,

she thought wistfully of what it had meant to be a part of the brilliant chorus of voices.

So much given, so much received. She was content. There were compensations.
