Elizabeth, it must have been a surprise
when Mary appeared before your eyes.
Did you know before she came
that both of you were in a new game?
You must have felt John jump inside
as God’s Spirit came to reside.
You must have thought it very odd
to be able to host the Mother of God.
I wonder if they communicated
since both babies were related
and even though they were both
in a womb
they lived for a while in the same room.
When they were both little boys
did they have time to share their joys
or were they much like families today
who seem to live so far away.
