267. Diseased Spirit / Charitable Heart
Pelted by the tears of many thousands in pain,
Covered by darkness, concealed in a shroud,
Stands the Mistress of Hel, patient and proud.
Misery follows Hel always, her only companion,
The emptiness of her sorrow as deep as a canyon,
She knows that her black image is far from pretty,
Her spirit, so long diseased, has no room for pity.
And yet somehow among death, and great disparity,
She finds within herself the ability to show charity,
Hel invites in the old, and the sick who come to call,
And shares all she has with those who sit in her hall.
