Shield Mate

Upon the Earth in sky or sea, n'er lived
a fairer wonder formed, than such as she. 
Oh, Shield Mate, Mother Mary, child of Eve
who is reborn each age, when hope revives. 

So soft the breath of human life arrives
awesome in the pearly froth, the sea
a warrior birthed upon a sandy lea
freed of man's cloth restraints, thus she thrives.

For sinless and aglow, she does arise
no need for cloak or length of tress to hide
stalwart is her beauty, her majesty
Enlightened are her follower's guises
with linked hearts may each new spirit confide
the eternal maid rises... a Valkyrie.

    if Adam the first son of God returned as Jesus Christ, the son of God, perhaps Eve as Mary gave birth to him ...

    This is modern, loose but contained! I think this will stick in me for a long while. I especially liked the 8th,10th and 11th lines. There is something about the word unknowing that tossed me out of this poem for but a moment... maybe a stranger to sin? Or unaquainted with? Or I'm just being pernickety and you should leave it as is? ;) Hugs to you SIS and gotta fly. Sent you a soupie. A happy and exhausted, Dee.

    Your penned words take on new life and significant meaning of Divinity. An exceptional poem Debbie. It makes one look beyond the penned words of the poet to challenge the mind. Warm smiles, Connie
