Day 10: Card: Justice
Forlorn she fell, as stone from sky
And to the Deathly Court drew nigh
Where Doom in judgment sat enthroned
And lingered he, though uncondoned.
“O justice!” cried she first, and told
Of trials faced, of evils bold
They’d thwarted and amazed for love,
Untimely torn from world above.
But Judgment knows no lawful beam
To life’s unscaled measures deem
All rightly weighed as blow for blow
So that all reap but as they sow
“Then mercy,” pleaded she, and Sang
As none shall ever Sing again:
For Pity weighs where scales want:
O’er peerless love mere law shan’t vaunt.
