Title Mother Manti
Description MOTHER MANTI G. Arthur Carpenter First Prize Non-Professional Poetry Cities have personalities, like a warrior, cold and hard, Or a delicate princess, polished and proud Manti is Mother-nurturing, caring, selfless--from her womb 1 saw life's first light. She was born in the chill of November, of great travail and sacrifice. Grown to majesty in simplicity-small in stature, large in virtue, Powerful in lowliness! An islet of constancy in a turbulent world- A rock of refuge, a balm for the heavy heart, we visit her And come away renewed; Her smile, the temple. It shines down upon us protectively, tenderly as we sleep The hills are her arms; they enfold us and draw us safely To her bosom soft. The meadowed valley, her lap, where we once played and durst now lay our head In trust and peace Each scattered child she numbers, a maternal bond, That no force can break MOTHER MANTI, to Thee all hail, honor, and veneration! 5
