Old Woman or Crone

Old woman
body sags
eyes dull
hearing wavers
songs all sung
slipping off to sleep

Crone
with crinkling smile
among deep canyons
of life lived
piercing eyes
see into your soul
touching the place of knowing
she wanders the garden
talking to the moon
feeding on the nectar
of the wild ones

Which one do you want
I'll take the crone, please
