Mother listens
to the songs of her young
knows their voices before their born

Mother Hen
little chicks
peep coo peep
as she turns the eggs
as their lives she keeps
Mother Hen
such a Mother

Mother sings
to her piglets
songs of reassuring love
did you know a Momma Pig could
sing
see how they move in closer
respond to her sounds
Mother Pig
such a Mother

Mother Cat
feeds her newborn kittens
hides and moves them
from the murderous Tom
nurses and then makes room for one more
not her own
see how they trust her
Mother Cat
such a Mother
generous tireless

is this some
anthropomorphic
observation

no
these
are merely facts

Some
are more devoted
and suited to the task of
 Motherhood
(Chickens
Pigs
and
Cats)
than are
 Human Mothers.
