Poem of Praise for Aloe

I have had an Aloe plant for the last five years, and I’ve never written a song in its praise before.  In beginning my work with Mengloth, however, I’m looking to redress that.  Aloe seems to enjoy it; I hope you do too.

Hail to you holy Aloe
Plant of arid country
Life-giver, water-giver
You bless me
Your healing waters bless me
Pouring out from your cut leaf
Your lifeblood to ease my pains
Yet you recover
With the next growth
As if the cut was never there
Patient, waiting, drinking in
Thriving wherever you seed
