My Lady Elvira: Personally, I think Death has no gender... Death has no need of sex. It's just my western philosophy upbringing that makes my brain classify Death as male. As for Death not being a lady... I believe a woman is far better at judging the quality of someone's soul. Thanks you for your time and comments, glad you enjoyed.
Balladeer: I always appreciate the time you take to stop and read. Your comments, and more your poems, are highly prized as the coin of the realm. My thanks.
