A MOTHER'S Love--how sweet the name!
What is a Mother's Love?--
A noble, pure, and tender flame
Enkindled from above,
To bless a heart of earthly mold;
The warmest love that can grow cold:
This is a Mother's Love.

To bring a helpless babe to light,
Then, while it lies forlorn,
To gaze upon that dearest sight
And feel herself new-born,
In its existence lose her own,
And live and breathe in it alone:
This is a Mother's Love.

To mark its growth from day to day,
Its opening charms admire,
Catch from its eye the earliest ray
Of intellectual fire;
To smile and listen while it talks
And lend a finger when it walks:
This is a Mother's Love.
