|Post subject:||Ave Maria! - Poem|
I thought I'd share a poem I wrote years back as a postulant.
Hail our Mother and our Queen
Who, at present though not seen,
Watches and protects us here-
in times of peace and times of fear.
Please help us to be more like you
Who, in everything, was true.
Please help us trust and truly pray:
Let it be done me as you say.
Guide us, please, and help us obey
The words at Cana you did say.
Like those servants, please help us do
What ever He tells [us] to.
Show us, please, the way to go
And what we should do to know.
Please help our minds be lit, not dim
As we heed: Listen to Him.
Please help us have obedient hearts
And never let our feet depart
From the way which you did run
That will lead us to your Son.
Hail, my Mother and my Queen!
Though your loving hands unseen,
I know you have maternal care
For us your children everywhere.
