To the Giant Lady

O Giant Lady (for Lady you are!)
in the farmhouse
How valiantly defending
your self
your land
your people
your planet
from invaders
from American imperialist troops
from fear itself

O Giant Lady (though I am from USA)
will you let me read to you?
As you seem to be,
I am all alone
I am hungry for
your company
your cooking
your visions

O Giant Lady (in another zone)
how can I come to you
how can you come to me
how can I see you
how can I read to you

O Giant Lady (if there is time enough)
be my friend!

–Henry Bemis
