The Queen of the Crown of Poland

The Queen of the Crown of Poland

Hands folded in prayers
Without the Child
In precious dress
Shining day and night

Mother of God Queen of Poland?s crown
miracle famous, beloved
listening into the great past
of brilliance and martyrdom

symbol of Wilno in Ostra Brama
guarding gates
distinguished and beautiful stones
of the timeless ?Ode to Youth?

invaders bowed to her
kings and saints kneeling
sung by poets
of different faiths

offered countless vota
richly surrounding her brilliance

Holy Mother I thank you for Wilno
For freedom…
For the son…
Thank yoy…

Wilnus, May 2000u
