Mary's Part





















MARY'S  PART

Imagine
a young girl,
a  child,
free of care,
obedient,
hopeful
for a future
filled with love
and happiness.
Imagine,
if you can,
a spirit,
a swoon,
a quickening,
a god
come to earth.
Imagine then
a life
of love
and pride
and grief
and
all of history
forever altered
all because
a humble girl,
when chosen,
said yes
to God.

  9. I have just responded to your Poetry Bus effort with the thought that it's your best yet, but now I'm not sure. This one runs it pretty damn close. You are on a roll!
