Lazy Poets Thursday Poem 5

My poem this week is my response to International Women’s Day tomorrow. Last year I published a short story https://lucidgypsy.wordpress.com/2012/03/08/a-post-for-international-womens-day/ you may have read it? If you can please go to http://song.unwomen.org/ and buy this wonderful song to celebrate women. Thanks to Jo http://jobryantnz.wordpress.com/2013/03/08/international-womens-day-2013/ for sharing it.

In Hope

Cast aside your veil

Turn your face to the sun

Gather round the hearth

Your work today is done

Your sisters draw near

Feet planted to earth

They no longer fear

The lone walk on the trail

Your children breathe free

The mountains clear air

Well nourished with plenty

And wind blown away care

Your abundance is here

Take love in your stride

Future perfect and clear

Go forward with pride

Cast aside your veil

And no longer hide
