Elizabeth Ann Johnson

Mary Morris











two of my girls are mother's now
leading the list
then their mother
and so forth

direct descendants
each a mother

Mary Morris
what were you like
who ever thinks of you
or mentions your name?

did you taste a banana
take a hot shower
 see the world from the sky?

you have birthed
seven generations of mothers
a seed
coming to fruition
many times over

we are good women
mother's in Zion
we reverence our calling

thank you
Mary Morris
i stand in awe
at the power of one

today i said
your name
