See Saw Serenade

The angel child was given a cross with a mustard seed

the father he loved her and not to displease,

as she was deprived of the apple of his eye.

The angel look did slowly recede

with the actions of the hurting read.

With oceans of emotions

she bound her feet and traveled

inside. The others, they wondered

what those vacant eyes saw

they saw a safe place of love from

her Father God.

She tried, then, to show it, then stow it,

then blast it about in a tantrum

that brought disaster to the house.

Until she then pushed out to see

how to saw the God in the rest.
