Rebecca got married when her daughter was born.
Every year since she's re-chosen her state.
Beauty's best seen through contemplative eyes,
Easy with life while embracing dark cries,
Clear, like Rebecca, in willing one's fate.
Child with child, with much reason to mourn,
Always Rebecca looks to the dawn.
