THE WAYS OF LOVE, by                    
First Line: I hold that this is true
Last Line: Is every inch a man!
Subject(s): Mothers

I HOLD that this is true--
From lads in love with their mothers
Our bravest heroes grew.
Farth's grandest hearts have been loving hearts,
Once time and earth began;
And the boy who kissed his mother
Is every inch a man!
