The Moment
By Florence Kiper Frank
 
From “New Life”

THEY have me again in the birth-room,
Where all night long I lay in a rhythm of agony,
Horrible hell-rhythm of birth-giving!
Pain …
A gasping cessation …        5
Pain….
.    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .
How I loathe the white nurses!
Yet they too are women,
They too … are women …
I should be sorry … for women…        10
