HAVE YOU SEEN HER RECENTLY?

Have you seen her recently?
Have you seen the queenly carriage of her head?
Have you seen the smile that plays around her mouth so readily?
Have you seen the way her past seems to be dead?

Did you see her being dragged down the street?
Did you see her tear-stained face and tangled hair?
Did you see her terror, with eyes downcast towards her feet?
Did you see her supplicating hands as they threw her there?

Did you hear all that the angry crowd had to say?
Did you hear the accusations fly?
Did you hear her sobbing, as her terror increased, as she wondered if the crowd would have their way?
Did you hear what He had to Say by and by?

He Listened, to what everyone blurted out!
He Listened, not looking at anyone... just Stared at the ground at His Feet!
He Listened, to them all - and then sent them to route!
He Listened, to her sobbing... And Said in A Voice so Sweet...

"Let him who is without sin cast the first stone!"
As He continued to Write in the sand with His Finger, they skulked off home!
The curious... the angry... the righteously indignant... who are so well known!
"Go!  And sin no more... you are free to roam!"

Stunned and amazed, she listened to what He had to Say!
Weeping tears of joy now... her fear was dead!
Smiling shyly, "Thank You Sir, God Bless You Well, I pray!"
As though a huge weight had lifted off her shoulders, she walked away with a regal tilt to her head!
