The Song of Deborah
and post notes and photos about your poem like Debbie Guzzi.
Formed from the seed of love their feelings prime,
a girl child was woven heroine,
biblical prophetess in time;
Deborah was such, the name chosen, mine.
Like a lightening bolt was she conceived,
a joining of aspirant souls,
seeking other primal roles,
into controversy; she was received.
This fiery woman, a rousing Queen Bee
Debbie was raised, the mothering maid.
A leader, biblical judge conveyed
hers the responsibility to creed.
Matriarch of Jews, she, from the tribe Ephraim,
A mother of Israel was she.
The equal of every he,
This, the burden given me, by name branded.
Upon the shoulders of such a frail form
this ancestral burden was laid.
The unknown outcome heaven made
all of life is tested when Deb "bees" are born.
