The Steward's Exclamation
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gillena Cox
Other Poems by Gillena Cox



Do whatever he tells you,

This is what Mary had said,

So they filled the water jars,


Just as he had asked them to,

For a bride and groom were wed,

Blessed bond to meter years;


Then from the jars, some they drew,

For tasting by  the steward,

Oh! tis the best wine in years,


Was the steward's exclamation;


So you see, his mother knew,

And thus, he Jesus was led,

To a time, writ in the stars.
