Subject(s): Home; Old Age


Ambitious dreams of youthful worldliness
Are dead long since, by tiny hands brought low.
To keep the home, to see the children grow,
To clothe and nourish little minds not less
Than little bodies; these the tasks that bless
The routine of my days: and well I know
No greater gifts than these could I bestow
Nor ask a truer measure of success.
God must have righteous men upon His earth;
For still He weaves its age-old destiny,
And still His threads are hearts of inner worth.
O patient, tender, happy may I be
In woman's mighty stewardship of birth—
The simple, obvious service due from me!
