29. Mother
 
By Theresa Helburn
 
 
I HAVE praised many loved ones in my song,
          And yet I stand
Before her shrine, to whom all things belong,
          With empty hand.
 
Perhaps the ripening future holds a time        5
          For things unsaid;
Not now; men do not celebrate in rhyme
          Their daily bread.
