Mothers Are Not Only of the Womb
Music: Carolan's Cup.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Mothers are not only of the womb.
One can mother children not one's own.
The love one gives makes gardens out of stone,
However one is kindred to each bloom.
Even as we render tribute due,
Remember that it also is for you,
Song to one who would the task assume.
