Ada A woman's heart is not kept in her breast -- a child takes many forms within the mind and is not by its parentage defined. My father was a poet; to protest Mama ensured I was not so inclined. A woman's heart is not kept in her breast; a child takes many forms within the mind. To science, not to sonnets, I was pressed. In formulas and numbers I would find creation of a fascinating kind. A woman's heart is not kept in her breast -- a child takes many forms within the mind and is not by its parentage defined. To calculate, to innovate, to build, to catch the stars and amplify their light to fence with God, to give the grounded flight. Mama is quite a woman, highly skilled of intellect, but not so impolite to calculate, to innovate, to build, to catch the stars and amplify their light. In earthly love, we both stay unfulfilled, mere ornaments to history, contrite apologists in ribbons. We've no right to calculate, to innovate, to build, to catch the stars and amplify their light to fence with God, to give the grounded flight.
