Where is my mare-babe

Many miles under the sea where the mare-man and the mare-maid swim free. Long time , long time gone there once was heard this plaintiff song.

Where is my mare-babe where is he. I only set him down whilst I set a shoal of fishes free from the evil serpent that roams these seas.

  Silver silent tears she wept running running down her milky breast. Her pain was there for all to see as clearly as the milk for her lost babe was running free.

Where is my mare-babe where is he. I only set him down whilst I set a shoal of fishes free from the evil serpent that roams these seas.

On the air she heard her baby’s cries she swam to the surface but could not believe her eyes. The Serpent ugly vicious and heartless too had in his jaws her mare-babe! OH! sweet Neptune what was she to do!

Where is my mare-babe where is he. I only set him down whilst I set a shoal of fishes free from the evil serpent that roams these seas.

She ask the Dolphins she begged  the Whales would they distract the Serpent with their dancing tails and she would try to wrestle free her darling babe of the sea.

Where is my mare-babe where is he. I only set him down whilst I sent a shoal of fishes free from the evil serpent that roams these seas.

The Whales they thrashed that serpent sly. The Dolphins did their best to distract him by leaping  out the waves towards the sky. The fish all shouted the Octopus hissed and spat , the haughty serpent wondered, did they think they could frighten him like that??

Where is my mare-babe where is he. I only set him down whilst I set a shoal of fishes free from the evil serpent that roams these seas.

An Angel saw the boiling sea and asked the Lord what can all that be. He all knowing said come with me . The Lord and the Angel asked the mare-maid did she believe that they could help if they would intercede. Still with silver tears in her eyes I do believe, I do she cried.

Where is my mare-babe where is he. I only set him down whilst I set a shoal of fishes free from the evil serpent that roams these seas.

The Lord motioned to the Angel and said you see this mare-maid she believes in me! Go now angel of mine with hair of fire kill that serpent and from it’s jaws set the mare-babe free.

The Angel smote the serpent across its head then lashed its back until it bled. As his jaws opened wide  the Lord took the child and laid it down by its mother’s side.  Out to sea the serpent screamed and then as if it were something dreamed the Lord banished it and all its kind no more to trouble  mare-mankind.

    Your most creative accomplishment so far, Willowdot–without a doubt! And it goes with the “mare-babies” of our creative efforts, the writings that we labor to birth and too often set down “for just a moment” while setting something or someone else free from various threats. Thanks Be that we can call on God and His Angels to come into our written “mare-babies.”

      You are so right, so clever you spot things long before I realise I have said or even witten them. Yes we are writing our mare -babes and yes we are happy and lucky to have the Lord to help us. I’m so proud that you like this one it is special to me. I am off to bed now as it is passed midnight so God bless you for now. Xx
