Sarah’s Purpose

Sarah’s purpose changes, coloured cotton

Delivering the tree of woven threads

Something in the name of one begotten

In house of many branches, many beds

Sarah’s purpose pending, without ending

House topmost in limbs of fallen tree

Shaken at the roots, its other children

Strangers in the promise of the free

Sarah’s purpose changes, milk and honey

Recipe of sweetness turning sour

Sarah’s purpose changes, blood and brethren

By the minute, come the purpose, by the hour
