$20.00

Hi, I'm Christy, thank you for visiting my shop! I'm a freelance writer and published poet. I have written all of the poems you see in my shop.

---------------------

I have typed out my Salem Witch Trial poem with my 1936 Remington Junior Typewriter. The poem is signed by me and dated. (I typed it out in 2014). I will not be selling any more hand typed Salem Witch Trial poems, this is the one and only.

The poem has been typed onto handmade cotton paper. Each of the three sheets of paper measures 5 x 7 inches. You will receive the poem shown in the photos, you can zoom in for a closer look.

The Salem Witch Trial poem is a fictional story about Sarah Bright, a beautiful red haired girl that was falsely accused of being witch in 1682.

Ready to ship! This item has already been made and will be mailed out quickly.

Salem Witch Trial

She'd stroll through the
village, eyes fixed on the
ground. When greeted the girl
scarcely uttered a sound.

Since her parents death
a few years back
she's lived on her own
in no more than a shack.

Her hair as red
as the fire of hell,
in the thoughts of men
her innocence fell.

They'd follow her in
the light of day,
besot by her
peculiar way.

They'd leave their
wives in the dark of night
to spy as she danced
beneath the moonlight.

One woman swore by God
that she witnessed
her reading a book
of magic so wicked

No wonder her husband
had such foolish notions,
possessed by this witch
and all her love potions.

When questioned, the girl,
she could not tell
what power had she
if not by spell;

Could take hold of a man,
lead him into temptation,
if not by spell
or some incantation.

Her persuasion rooted
in evil they deemed.
Her protest heard
by way of her screams.

When they put her inside
the old metal pot,
it's with the will of the
devil himself that she fought.

It was said her fate
would be redeemed
if her body remained
below surface.

Named pure again
in the eyes of God
by those who stood
to bear witness.

Fully submerged,
she struggled for air,
sinking, the angel
with fire for hair.

With bibles in hand
they gathered around.
Together they shouted
while watching her drown.

Redemption then granted,
her sins pronounced clean,
by the men who condemned
her to death, at sixteen.
