Looking For a Poem

St Joseph, [bowing my head, on his feast day, one venerates the name of a saint,] has me thinking.

Dialing past a show that I didn't know, with a priest/presenter I did not recognize, (or I would write to EWTN,) a year or more back, I heard the tail end of a very sentimental poem about the harrowing of hell, and Christ being welcomed by various Old Testament figures, and at the end, one solitary figure greeting him with, "How's your Mother, Son?"

At the time it struck me as mawkish, but I have never forgotten it, and find it ever more moving every time I think of it, and would like to find it.

Internet searches turned up nothing.

Anyone know it?
