First Line: She did not love one son the more
Last Line: In whom her love was satisfied.
Subject(s): Sons


She did not love one son the more
For that he climbed the steps to fame,
And placed a green, perennial wreath
Above her name.
She loved as much the other one
Who could not rise above the rest,
And who had need of her and love,
And she was blest
In two fine sons she always said,
And hung their pictures side by side --
A nation's favored, and the one
In whom her love was satisfied.
