Knees creak like great gates made fast.
Weekly domestic bazaar trade cease.
Embers orange blinking sleep at last.
No light remains dark table peace.

Recollect no pure faculty habit.
Tarnished garment taunting abut.
Never before now rudimentary facet.
Humiliation and shame cannot chance it.

Peace and heaving silence woven pact.
Younglings wrapped up wardshipped.
Elders lay in content cogitation.
Doubts drowned up smothered.
