Room (For Frances Perry, Founder of the Royal Women’s Hospital, Melbourne)

Make room for us in your hearts.
(2 Corinthians 7:2)

She found herself aboard a ship
Southward bound to Melbourne where

Her husband would take up his post.
But she did not stand by passive,

Heart made open to take others
In where doors were rarely open,

Making beds and room enough for
Those who found themselves without room,

Heart transformed by one who was born,
Roomless, in a manger.
