Drop of Love


Poetry
 
DROP OF LOVE
By FERNANDO A. ZAPATER



DROP OF LOVE
THAT NIBBLES DOWN YOUR BREAST
YOU ARE THE MOTHER WHO FEEDS
THE INFANT BABY WITH HER MILK
ALLOW US TO WORSHIP THOU

YOU ARE TO BECOME ANOTHER
ANOTHER ONE AMONGST MANY
A MOTHER WHO FEEDS HER CHILD
WITH HER LOVE, BREAST AND HONESTY

WHEN A FEATHER CARESSED YOU
IT CAME FROM VERY HIGH ABOVE
SUCH TENDER LOVE POSSESSED
THE GLORY OF YOUR MOTHERHOOD

BUT YOUR DROP OF LOVE WOMAN
MOTHER WOMAN GIRL CHILD YOU
WAS WHITE AND GLISTENING GOLD
SURRENDERED IN LOVE WE TRUST

YOUR DROP OF LOVE WOMAN
YOUR MOST SWEETEST SELF
COMES FROM CLOSE TO YOUR HEART
YOUR LOVE JUST POURS ITSELF.
