"O World Beneath the Mother's Wing"

Random Poetry List XXXIV

O world beneath the mother's wing,
   Secure from harm,
The heart so near the sheltered thing
   To keep it warm!

No longer needed now the light
   Of heaven above;
The very darkness breathes a plight
   Of deeper love.

John B. Tabb (1845-1909)
