TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 3. IN THE CHAMBER OF BIRTH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: In the chamber of birth
Last Line: And the good anxious husband comes to the door smiling again at last.
Subject(s): Babies; Birth; Hearts; Love - Marital; Mothers; Infants; Child Birth; Midwifery; Wedded Love; Marriage - Love


IN the chamber of birth,
Calm and joyful the exhausted mother, with disheveled hair, lies obliquely
across the bed—the little primitive conical-skulled god rests snug on the
pillow in front of her
The baffling infant face, with closed eyes and flexible upper lip, and
storms and sunshine sweeping across its tiny orb, and filmy clouds of
expression!
But for her O the rest, the rest and the peace now it is all over—no
desire to move, only to lie and rest for joy!
While the bustling cheerful midwife is full of praises and congratulations,
and the good anxious husband comes to the door smiling again at last.
