SOMETHING BETTER, by            
First Line: Ten little heads have found their sweetest rest
Last Line: Is something better and more noble still.
Alternate Author Name(s): Smith, Mary Louise Riley
Subject(s): Mothers


TEN little heads have found their sweetest rest
Upon the pillow of her loving breast;
The world is wide; yet nowhere does it keep
So safe a haven, so secure a rest.
'Tis counted something great to be a queen
And bend a kingdom to a woman's will.
To be a mother such as mine, I ween,
Is something better and more noble still.
