Ballad of a Mother’s Heart


Jose La Villa Tierra
1 17
The night was dark, for the moon was young Without another word, Youth left
2 18
And the stars were asleep and rare And went to his mother dear,
3 19
The clouds were thick, yet Youth went out And opened her breast and took her heart
4 20
To see his maiden fair He did not shed a tear!
5 21
“Dear One,” he pleaded as he knelt Then back to his Maiden fair he ran;
6 22
Before her feet, in tears, Unmindful of the rain;
7 23
”My love is true; why have you kept But his feet slipped and down he fell
8 24
Me waiting all these years?” And loud he groaned in pain

9 25
The Maiden looked at him unmoved, Still in his hand he held the prize
10 26
It seemed it whispered low That would win his Maiden’s hand;
11 27
“Persistent Youth, you have to prove And he thought of his mother dear
12 28
By deeds your love is true.” So kind, so sweet, so fond.

13 29
“There’s not a thing I would not do And then he heard a voice, not from
14 30
For you, Beloved,” said he. His lips but all apart:
15 31
“Then go,” said she, “to your mother dear, “Get up,” it said “were you hurt, Child?”
16 32
And bring her heart to me.” It was his mother’s heart
