A Tribute to Mother Aubert
She saw in each of these a Christ grown old,
A Christ with tattered soles and ragged sleeves,
A Christ with withered hands, a crippled Christ,
A Christ that all the World rejects and grieves.
And those who followed her she taught to be
Voice to the dumb and helpless, hands,
Eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame,
And to the small and homeless, roof and lands.
And when God walks His rounds at eventide,
On the New Zealand side and comes on them,
She will have still her brood beneath her wings,
As once He yearned to hold Jerusalem.
Eileen Duggan, O.B.E.
