MATERNITY, by            
First Line: I must go all my days
Last Line: Of the miraculous.
Alternate Author Name(s): Yarmolinsky, Avrahm, Mrs.
Subject(s): Mothers

I MUST go all my days
Softly as snow, whose wings
Follow the hidden ways
Of unimagined springs.

My stricken heart is caught
In briers of surprise;
Its beats are hushed as thought,
And eloquent as eyes.

I cry God to pity them
Whose joy is boisterous,
Since I have touched the hem
Of the miraculous.
