Queen of Hearts

A painted portrait
of tender maid
wrapped in lace
and golden chain

A single rose
in her hand
her wit and eye
the reprimand

The letter B
Emblazoned bare
the second wife
Young and fair

Her mystery
and brave of face
The Queen of Hearts
Relented chaste

Her womb did bare
so many sorrows
Her life discarded
New wife tomorrow

New faith was founded
to cover shame
A line of grace
Flows from her name
