“Yang Jia Lian (Lotus of the Sun)” by Sharon Rauenzahn

A fire burns in you,
A scorching light.
Man must do right.
Woman must speak true.
Your cool hands
Touch the poor,
Steady, sure.
An iron band
Of purest will
Stiffens your spine.
Your spirit shines.
You pour, and pour, and fill
Small rooms with light.
A fire burns in you.
Man must speak true.
Woman must do right.
