she swung forth to find the fall of night

oft in the field from the day’s foes,
under the naked branch, she sat
upon the wooden seat, isolated;
moving in a curved arc, in flight,
without the intent of hitting the air, 
she swung forth to find the fall of 
night; she chanced to endure the
dole of darkness approaching.
that this little girl had heard each
night for fifty years, the din of 
revel, high in the heavens, flying, 
now came the light to lighten, her 
soul to keep forever; the swing 
no longer swaying, lifeless.
