Mother’s Refrain


See now, my heart is baby's sky
Steady on, keep time

Truth to tell, aren't my hips solid earth?
Steady on, keep time

Hear how my body sings chorale
Baby's tethered, tide's in, tide's out
Steady on, keep time

Little one, thrive in my ocean
Love your underwater life
Curl, stretch, kick and grow

Ready now, clean lungs
Ready now, clear eyes
to breathe the air we have made for you

Now it is time
We are steady on in our ways
Here you are - new

Go back, little one
We do not deserve
your baby giggles.
