A Woman
By Scudder Middleton
  SHE had an understanding with the years;
For always in her eyes there was a light
As though she knew a secret none might guess.
So calmly did she bear the weight of pain,
With such serenity accept the joy,        5
It seemed she had a mother-love for Life,
And all the days were children at her breast.
