...the Washer at the Ford, another guise of the Morrígan.
The Washer is usually to be found washing the clothes
of men about to die in battle.
In effect, She is choosing who will die.
--from Pagan Celtic Britain, by Anne Ross
Hands full of bloody laundry,
You sit at the river's edge.
For so many men come to you
in their time.
And the cruel scything grip
of your talons.
You stride amongst the wounded.
You dine on death.
You winnow weak and strong alike.
Who is there who can stand in your way,
And end the ringing clash of steel,
Silence the screams of the maimed,
And wash away the blood?
