Weary body rinds no rest Gnarled fingers to attest of work shes done. Holding book of classics read. Then tucking in each nodding head. Last to retire in dark of night First to rise at mornings light Busy hands at rising sun. Birthing seven in stark privation, mouths to feed each new creation. Always mothering her begotten brood. Strongly teaching them moral good Lesson time she could afford. Proudly watching each child achieve Knowing that each one would leave. Proving that percepts caught Would guide in life as each was taught, Trusting in the living Lord. Hands crossed now on silent breat Lastly finding deserved rest One hundred years calmly close. Harsh years now in deaths repose.
