mary

woe to the creative mother earth

she has been given up to corruption

her new seeds die before the market and her mantle stripped bare

wracked with trembling ailments

and overcome by waters

and seething pots of fire

you can almost hear her groaning and the mothers of the earth with her

cry out cry out to our sweet Mary

whose arms have held us safe through many storms

to Mother Mary send your plea

O mother Mary comfort me

and all the wounded souls on mother earth

O mother Mary comfort me

and all the wounded souls

O mother comfort all the wounded souls
