A Penitent Considers Another Coming Of Mary

Gwendolyn Brooks

	   For Reverend Theodore Richardson

If Mary came would Mary 
Forgive, as Mothers may, 
And sad and second Saviour 
Furnish us today? 

She would not shake her head and leave 
This military air, 
But ratify a modern hay, 
And put her Baby there. 

Mary would not punish men—
If Mary came again.
