WOMAN AND ARTIST, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I thought to win me a name
Last Line: With its lips against my breast.
Subject(s): Mothers

I THOUGHT to win me a name--
Should ring in the ear of the world--
How can I work with small pink fists
About my fingers curled?

Then adieu to name and to fame.
They scarce are worth at the best
One touch of this wet little, warm little mouth,
With its lips against my breast.
