she said her mother was waiting
could I take her there    she was
waiting and would worry    she asked
how my mother was and I said
you are my mother    she looked
amused    then she leaned over
and took my arm    she said
does mother know where we are
I said yes mom    she knows  
she's waiting    will you
tell her I'll be there   she said
as soon as I can get to the bus
I'll tell her I said   she patted
my arm and hummed   give your
mother my love    she said
