when you see mother

when you see mother
tell the tale
tell this dear tale
that he dwells
in the woods
like her hairy kids
who now live as lambs
beside some shepherds’
green pastures
planted by the lions’ dens
within these niger’s banks
banks swollen of grasses
grasses housing the weavers
oh, tell the tale
tell this dear tale
when you see mother.

    I saw the mother she was weeping, weeping dry eyes for villains have stolen even her tears. I saw the mother she asked of her son's those above ground and shivering, those below ground helf close to her breast and her beating heart no longer wept. I saw the mother blinded by the light of man. Light & Love
