Facing the Unknown

January 29, 2018

 

Rebecca feels the breeze 
stirring the ribbons on your travel-hat 
and soon you will be summoned
ALL ABOARD!
Sophie consents at last, and blesses you.
How painful these last moments!
vineyard – and tumbril – weigh
upon your lonely sacrifice, as France recedes 
and Indians call in language quite unknown;                  
but very soon they’ll know you through and through,
Woman who always prays! Pray then for us; we too
bring the essential from our heritage
leaving the rest, as we set sail
for new life, a new land.
