Ode To Anthony*

You must have been
A son, of a River,
Like that River, which Peter
Once drew , Maranon,
You must have been
A River of a God,

Otherwise,
How could have
You had drawn
With so much of care,
The Babe , not in the manger,
But amidst Nature,
(Like that Peruvian River
Perhaps flowing beside You,
Maranon)

You must have been
A son of a River,

Other wise,
Who could have drawn
Such awesome,
Maria and Her UNBORN,

With Catherine
Looking after
The Child, as He played
Lying, so beautiful,
And perhaps
A tree of Apple
Giving the trio,
A shelter,

You must have been
A Son of a River,
(Like that Peruvian One,
As Peter Paul once drew,
Declaring the entry
Of Ferdinand)

You must have followed
Him,
The Lord,

Otherwise,
Who could have drawn
Such a Beauty and Bless
Such halo, such Kindness.
