Compassion-Ocean: Mother Lillian
Compassion-Ocean, Mother Lillian,
To you I bow, a seeker Indian.
Your wonder Peace Corps-service-light
Consoled, nurtured Bharata’s tearful night.
Your cheerful, ready and constant selfless role
Desires to stop the world’s unending dole.
Mother, greatness your name, goodness your heart.
Your vision pilots our journey’s oneness-start.
[Dedicated to Lillian Carter, mother of President Jimmy Carter]
