The Dullahan

the Dullahan has come for me

my death, I foresee

she rode her horse, crossed the farm

with her head under one arm

carrying sunflowers to place

on top of my coffin case

she called my name

for my soul to claim

my corpse lied on its back

and the raven, ready to snack

    Wonderful verse! And thank for the link to the word dullahan. I had never heard it before, but its description fits perfectly with the photo this week. 🙂

    I am left with a sense of doom and resignation. Good emotion generating poetry.
