He Vowed

Drenched in the downpour
He crouched at the centre of the ancient henge
He mate, his partner, his wife bleeding and leaking out her life
His teeth clenched, his emotions wrenched, his heart in pain
From the wedge that hammered harder than the rain
He vowed – he pledged – with words hatred-entrenched
He would drive her killer to the edge
Every wilding river dredged
He’d not once rest till he had his revenge.
