A TRINITY OF MOTHERHOOD, by                    
First Line: A mother's love--its meaning who can measure
Last Line: The chords of memory sweep!
Subject(s): Mothers

A mother's love -- its meaning who can measure,
Or who such depths of hallowed mystery sound?
Outside the heart of God so rich a treasure
Has never yet been found!

A mother's face -- all radiant and resplendent
Where memory guards the shrine with watchful care!
What master hand e'er wrought with touch transcendent
A thing so wondrous fair?

A mother's kiss -- O how its impress lingers,
Through all the change that o'er one's soul may creep!
It thrills me now as these poor trembling fingers
The chords of memory sweep!
