Journalists gather in flock for a sight
Of the Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Kate,
And Prince William, and the continued state
Of monarchy to shine from a star Light.
Oracle or constellation will write
The rhymes of Dryden singing out the fate
Of England as we in caesura wait
For a babe to enter the world tonight,
Swaddled in newspaper print, wrapped in praise.
But what line would Milton write of this day
As the shadows of Kings eclipse the Sun?
Enveloped in womb flesh, safe from the maze
Of war, greed, and flood, she will learn the way
Of hope found on the lost road to the Son.
