True Love
by Alice B. Clagett

A mother's love, I feel, is the

As rain loves the Earth,
and the small roots between the trees;
and tickles Oceans' Titans' foam-flecked feet,
and sends the Devas whirling, Sufi-style,
and blesses the conception of each child,
and bathes the borning World in ecstasy,
so is her love for thee.

--A gift of love, 21 November 2012
