In Thanks and Honor to my muse…my grandmother who passed away long before my birth…of her many published poems this has always been my favorite… Published in 1932 when Lindbergh’s baby boy first went missing….
Prayer for Lost Baby
Dear White Savior when it’s night
And winter’s stars blink coldly bright
And in the day while he’s away
Guard Lindy’s little one we pray
On those who stole him as he slept
Let thy strong fingers firm be kept
That Thou might halt them ere they make
A baby suffer for money’s sake
White Spirit of Jesus with thy might
Loan those that search all seeing sight
So Lindy Junior soon may be
Home in his own little nursery
Shepherd of Children let thy light
Shine down on the lost little one tonight….
