Sir Dominick’s Bargain XI

XI

A single brass needle pricks
Three drops of blood from a vein
Strange words scratched on parchment slips
And now our bargain is made

For seven years I serve you
When that time ends, you serve me
A master and his servant

 

Sir Dominick’s Bargain, 14 poems by Rufus Woodward based on the story by Sheridan Le Fanu.  Now available.
