In paintings of "The Madonna and Her Child"
Each master-hand has shown the mood he wore
Within his breast, to guide his flowing hand
Which established motherhood in Christian lore.
And through advancing years we see the calm,
Reflected features of a placid soul
Adoring the Creation, God bequeathed
Through love, for her to foster and console.

Within the eyes of each Madonna, seep
The wisdom that is born of every age;
Into those lucid pools, there seems to creep
A fear distilled within the artist's brain.
So the master of the modern age will paint
A gas-mask on his "Madonna and Her Saint."
