Sword Mistress | CBE International

Sword Mistress

Sword mistress who taught me to hold my blade
Always ready for defense or offense.
Sword mistress with weakening arm
and weakening eyes.
Sword mistress of the faultering foot.
The unsteady voice.
Sword mistress finally sheathed.
Detached from the belt.

The hiss of my saber drawn from its sheath
Is the memory of your whispered encouragements.
