To a daughter

Motherhood is mothergood—from Mother, God,not mother Eve.So leavethe bitter tears of gardens gone.Oh, do not grievefor that which never was:matter's paradise.Your freedom liesin knowing who your Mother is—not Eve: descendant of;not bitter bringings-forth with taint and toil—but God: your Mother, Love.
