The Visitation

I was sitting,
resting the ache of old bones
the babe within heavy
when I heard her step,
light and quick.

Looking up, I saw her,
so young, my dear cousin,
her smile a blessing,
and in her eyes a light
that penetrated my heart,
like a shaft of breaking dawn.

The babe within me
leapt up, I swear, leapt
for joy.
