Auld Margaret

Title - Auld Margaret
Contributors - Thomas Todd
Reporters - Francis Collinson

Summary - Auld Margaret starts work at dawn. The heifers are thriving, and the cockerel knows her step and greets her with a crow. She's old and failing now, her hair and eyes faded, but she has a beautiful serenity that the poet desires for himself at his end.
