What is a Mother?

What is a Mother
~ Francis Cardinal Spellman.

What is a mother? Who shall answer this?

A mother is a font and spring of life,
A mother is a forest in whose heart
Lies hid a secret ancient as the hills,
For men to claim and take its wealth away;
And like the forest shall her wealth renew
And give, and give again, that men may live.
