‘Why, what could she have done, being what she is?
Was there another Troy for her to burn?’
From the shadows, secrets silenced
with no amends
from vile men,
women have found their voice to tell
tales of hell
the world sees
that they refuse to be ashamed,
they’re naming names,
they will be heard!
Let truth emerge!
A Minute Poem for Jane Dougherty’s A Month With Yeats: Day Twenty-Nine.
Today’s verse is from Yeats’ Poem, ‘No Second Troy’.
