Her beauty
was matched only
by her haste
in generosity
as she descended
time and time again
to draw up water
while ten camels
drank their fill.

She lost no time
in setting out
(atop one of those camels!)
for a foreign land
to give herself
in marriage
to the relative
God had
in mind
for her.

Like her,
a lovely maiden
rose in haste
and traveled far
to give herself
in service
to a relative
God pointed out
to her.*

May I
fulfill
Your will,
O Lord,
with eagerness
in generosity.

*see Luke 1:36-56
