ELSIE'S MOTHERHOOD
A SEQUEL TO
"ELSIE'S WOMANHOOD

Sweet is the image of the brooding dove!
Holy as Heaven a mother's tender love!
The love of many prayers and many tears,
Which changes not with dim declining years--
The only love which, on this teeming earth,
Asks no return for passion's wayward birth."
--MRS. NORTON
