I'd Rather Be a Mother 

I'd Rather be a mother 
Than anyone on earth 
Bring up a child or two 
Of unpretentious birth. 
I'd rather nurse a rosy babe 
With warm lips on my breast 
Than wear a queen's medallion 
Above a heart less blest. 
I'd rather tuck a little child 
All safe and sound in bed- 
Than twine a chain of diamonds 
About my foolish head. 
I'd rather wash a smudgy face 
With round, bright baby eyes- 
Than paint the pageantry of fame, 
Or walk among the wise. 
~Meredith Gray
