For All Ladies of Shalott
By Aline Kilmer
THE WEB flew out and floated wide:
  Poor lady!—I was with her then.
She gathered up her piteous pride,
  But she could never weave again.
The mirror cracked from side to side;        5
  I saw its silver shadows go:
“The curse has come on me!” she cried.
  Poor lady!—I had told her so.
She was so proud, she would not hide;
  She only laughed and tried to sing.        10
But singing in her song she died;
  She did not profit anything.
