High by the gates of heaven

lies a Forget-me-not of a tree

with shimmering silvery leaves.

 

Infants large and small nestled comfortably 

amongst its branches with their feathery

wings, sucking warm milk

from this rare wet nurse tree

 

Nightly heaven’s lights on 

the tree rocks the babies to sleep

with the soft rustle of its leaves.

 

While stars twinkle 

sending love and kisses

to their lost mothers below.
