"The wanderer" by trimple
I discovered a town but its graveyard was bare.
The houses were new, death was yet to live there...
As I offered a stone to a river nearby,
two deep minded women appeared at my side...

Well, they asked me to tell of my story so far--
by the river where Lily and Rose were on-guard,
They delivered a blow I could not comprehend:
"If you tell us the truth, all your troubles will end...

I looked into their eyes I could see they were blind.
Their features were chiseled; their hands were entwined.
Reaching out to their shoulders and trembling with fear
"If I tell you my tale will you take me from here?

With great sorrow, they bowed as my story was told,
their eyes became clearer, their body's turned cold--
by the river where Lily and Rose are both laid,
I no longer wander from here in my grave...
