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
