Beware of Thyduza! ! !


Beware! Oh beware! !
Of Thyduza's snare!
Made of nooses that catch!
Hammers that smash!
That snatch thy breath,
And gnash thy teeth.
Wobble thy spine,
And tremble thy skin.
Beware of the foe,
That sucks from thy woe.

Beware of that witch!
That dwells in thy flesh!
The fingers that crush!
The legs that bash!
Face with no fear,
And nails that tear.
Voice that blares,
And teeth of gears,
That crush thy whole
And feed on thy soul.

Beware of Thyduza!
Daughter of Medusa!
The hair of serpents,
And the venomous bites!
The spell in the face
Enthralled by a gaze!
The groan! and stone!
Thy heart own...
Thyduza! Witch of forbidden eyes!
Watch not! Or thy heart dies!
For the stone it sows,
In thy heart it grows,
In showers of sorrows,
The rain of strains,
And the bane of pains,
That nurtures the sprout of gloom,
To bloom in the day of doom.

Beware! Oh beware! !
Beware of Thyduza!
Thy evil character!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
