My mother was like the protective bear
covering her cubs from the cruelty of the world
taking us places and always scouting out the landscape
seeking to find the strength to fend for hers
covering us with the cloth of protection
needled through with her crafty hands
My mother was a lady though delicate
dear you attempt to touch her cubs.
