Poems and Lyrics

Motherhood

    The bravest battle that ever was fought!
    Shall I tell you where and when?
    On the maps of the world you will find it not;
    'Twas fought by the mothers of men.

    Nay not with the cannon of battle-shot,
    With a sword or noble pen;
    Nay, not with eloquent words or thought
    From mouth of wonderful men!

    But deep in a walled-up woman's heart -
    Of a woman that would not yield,
    But bravely, silently bore her part -
    Lo, there is the battlefield!

    No marshalling troops, no bivouac song,
    No banner to gleam and wave;
    But oh! those battles, they last so long -
    From babyhood to the grave.

    Yet, faithful still as a bridge of stars,
    She fights in her walled-up town -
    Fights on and on in her endless wars,
    Then silent, unseen, goes down.

    Oh, ye with banners and battle-shot,
    And soldiers to shout and paise!
    I tell you the kingliest victories fought
    Were fought in those silent ways.

    O spotless woman in a world of shame,
    With splendid and silent scorn,
    Go back to God as white as you came -
    The Kingliest warrior born!

    - Joaquin Miller (1839-1913)
