Each Door-Step has its own blossoms

Inspired by Beate's lovely gift to me of Nell Dorr's

"Mother and Child"


"Each Door-Step has its own blossoms

And these are mine.

The fragrance of their breath is the air I breathe

And their roots go deep.

Yet here is no new kind of flower,

For every April smells of lilacs

And every mid-summer of the rose.

We are each of us brought forth by the same mother,

The human creature after his kind..." -- Nell Dorr
