Stirring : A Literary Collection

Christina Wos' Donnelly


All these children were unexpected
yet not unwanted.

Most I cleaned and swaddled,
made presentable.

But One
sprang full-grown
from the head of Zeus

or rather

rose up from the foam,
already splendid,
looked me in the eye
and said,
"Step aside, woman,
and hand me my fan."
