Have a Happy Mother's Day

The library will be closed this Sunday, May 14, for Mother's Day. Enjoy a lovely day, and please enjoy the following poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay, written in 1949 as an elegy to her mother:

The courage that my mother had

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.

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!-
That courage like a rock, which she
Has no more need of, and I have.
