Listening to every heart
Now my mind twisted the end to have the lady dissolve in Sir 'Deer's arms, while forlorn husband and son came in, for THEY had set the plates as, upon hearing a rumor of their passing, the grieved wife and mother headed for the moors to find her loves, only to perish herself, while the menfolk had returned home, safe.
Ah well, your version is good, too! LOL.
Fine job, Sir 'Deer!
