She cringes

from pale

blue

eyes

Strange

eyes

that watch

her

stare

at

her

prey

upon

her

A turn

of the head

and the eyes

are

gone lost

in the fold

of mother's

arms

shielded

by the warmth

of lambs-

wool

Crushed

by the press

to mother's

breast

The murmur of mother's heart

tickles her ear

A giggle

A whisper:

Who is he?
