The Courage that My Mother Had

The Courage That My Mother Had by Edna St. Vincent Millay The courage that my mother had Went with her, and is with her still: Rock from New England quarried; Now granite in a granite hill. 5 The golden brooch my mother wore She left behind for me to wear; I have no thing I treasure more: Yet, it is something I could spare. Oh, if instead she’d left to me The thing she took into the grave! 10 That courage like a rock, which she Has no more need of, and I have. ™ © Advanced Assessment Systems/LinkIt!
