Queen of Our Time


Where have you been?
Will you be our Modern Queen?
Catherine, away from a desert land,
Your promise of a future, so grand,

Time to turn our minds away,
From fear and pain,
To what our hearts say,

So we turn to you for hope,
Your inner strength inspires us all,
Your light lifts us up off our knees,
Your wisdom there for all to see!

Oh Great Queen,
Where have you been?
Is this your time to be seen?
Will you return us to fields green?

Will the Emerald Isle make you smile?
Can the rhythm of the street,
Match your heartbeat,
Will African fields feel the warmth of your feet?
May you sit long on the Royal seat!

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
