Charlotte Perkins Gilman

"So when the great word ‘Mother!’ rang once more,
I saw at last its meaning and its place;
Not the blind passion of the brooding past,
But Mother - the World's Mother - come at last,
To love as she had never loved before
-To feed and guard and teach the human race."

- Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935)
American writer, artist and social reformer.
