If tears and fears

Could be called to tell

I know much women tears

Will rise from the grave

And whine at the unfairness

That sent them there


Tears of those who suffered

Extreme jealousies which

Were interpreted as witchcraft

Tears of those beaten and stoned

To death for following their weird passions

And tears of the neglected and rejected


How much tears the earth has drunk

In the quietude of darkness!

In the bosom on hatred!

In the airs of many eye!

Who knows how most women cry

Until the sweat in their bodies

Are forced out by coffins’ oven?
