Mother: A Cradle to Hold Me Cover

 

 

Excerpt

Mother,

During those early dearest days

I did not dream that you had

A large life which included me,

For I had a life which was only you.

_______________________________

The way you posed your head

So that the light could caress your face

When you put your fingers on my hand

And your hand on my arm,

I was struck with a sense of health,

Of strength and very good fortune.

From the Hardcover edition.Copyright © 2006 by Maya Angelou
