A Couple of My Favorite Poems

I'd Rather

I'd rather be a mother

Than anyone on earth,
Bringing up a child or two of unpretentious birth.

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
