Treatise on an empress!!!

This is a treatise

On the unique empress

Of the kingdoms of kindness,

Born for, the world under duress.

She came to India,

All the way from Yugoslavia.

To teach and kindle knowledge,

To the ignorant, without any grudge.

She saw the suffering poor

And moved by the diseased without cure.

With humanity she drew them near

And attended to them without any fear.

She conquered the world, with guns of humility

And arrows of pity and piety;

Destroyed pains and nurtured amity,

Kept aflame love to eternity.

Lo! She came, she saw, she conquered,

As the dear Mother she will always be remembered!!

This is a humble offering to MOTHER TERESA!

This poem was written by Rathi Menon, my wife Deepa's mother.
