THE BIRTH OF A SONG, by            
First Line: It strove all day for right of birth
Last Line: I sang into life my song of june.
Subject(s): Birth; Life; Child Birth; Midwifery


IT strove all day for right of birth,
A frail and tender song;
But the hours of birth and hours of mirth
To the twilight time belong.

That night I sailed on a silver stream,
Steered my boat straight into the moon.
And half-awake and half in dream,
I sang into life my song of June.
