Daughters of Eve

Flesh of your flesh
She is your savior
Boldly scripted from the beginning
Who dares reassemble the letters?
Behold how the Hebrew is bristling

If you are drowning
She is your lifeguard
The Spirit of God imparted, inhaled
Tear down the placard of ‘helpmate’
With one word the coffin was nailed

Waiting her turn
Nursing and baking
Each womb births a new Athena
The secret will keep one more day
Salve Regina
