"Someway I will never be quite alone / I will hear my grandchildren laugh and shout / When I am old and it is getting cold / And find a meaning I have never known"


Transcendental Sonnet #1280:

Tomorrow When You Are a Mother

 

for Maria tomorrow

for Dara and Marina today

 

I have children much bigger than me

They get bigger as I get smaller

Bigger than I thought children could be

Not that they are fat just much taller

I never saw this happen before

But they are not children anymore

 

Someday they will have children of their own

Some of them already have mates picked out

Someway I will never be quite alone

I will hear my grandchildren laugh and shout

When I am old and it is getting cold

And find a meaning I have never known

 

God bless you today be kind to one another

God bless you tomorrow when you are a mother
