The Standing Welcome

She stands there

Day and

Night.

Never waivering 

Never backing down

The rivers water lapping at the 

Island edges.

Stars twinkling behind her high

Crown.

Face forward

Never looking 

Back

Watching the generatrions

Pass by. 

She welcomes all

Accepts the new, old and inbetweeners

She holds her light

A new meaning for all

A welcoming sign 

A goodbye sign

She stands for

Freedom

Beginnings

And new Life

A lone Woman in a 

World 

Where Males dominate

A Mother for all.
