Mothers

Mothers,stop grieving for sons now not yours
Give them to oth'r women for their grieving.

It takes a young woman's grit to pass sons
In the hall staring through glass, unconcerned ,
A single heart stopping act under a cold sky,
After a night of  pointing stars to daughters.

There are other women, girls- to- turn moms.
They'll do the needful on this cold night.
