Azaria

AZARIA

Uluru from Dreamtime lay beneath the southern sky
Year by year her patient vigil keeping;
Startled in the darkness by a baby's urgent cry
And down through seven years a mother's weeping.

Uluru, reluctantly, in morning sunlight cold,
Sadly gazed upon the outraged land.
Sacrificed uncaringly to man's false gods of old,
Truth, with Justice, lay on bloodied sand.

'Kept-by-God' the tiny child by arms of Love embraced;
Protected from the bitterness of strife.
Circling law and media their prey in menace faced;
Prowling round a grieving man and wife.

But Uluru looked back to when
Truth died before and rose again!



Notes.

Uluru = Ayers Rock
outraged land = because of what deed had been perpetrated
man's false gods of old = pride, prejudice etc.
Truth, with Justice = it was Truth & Justice which were sacrificed
Sacrificed = allusion to rumours that 'Azaria' meant 'sacrifice in the
wilderness'
'Kept-by-God' = the meaning of the name Azariah (masculine version) in
Young's Analytical Concordance
arms of Love = in God's care
Circling law and media = allusion to the Chamberlains being under attack
by the process of law and the media likened to dingo attack.
Uluru looked back = a reference to the time when Jesus Who was 'the Truth'
was sacrificed on Calvary and rose again. A note of hope.
