A Mother's Love for the Child

A mother's love for the child of her body

differs essentially from all other affections,

and burns with so steady and clear a flame

that it appears like the one unchangeable thing I

n this earthly mutable life,

so that when she is no longer present

it is still a light

to our steps and a consolation.

- W. H. Hudson
