An Idolator

Original Text: 
The Poetry of Father Tabb: John Banister Tabb, ed. Francis A. Litz (New York: Dodd, Mead, and Co., 1927): 179. PS 2965 A2 1928
1The Baby has no skies
2But Mother's eyes,
3     Nor any God above
4     But Mother's Love.
5His angel sees the Father's face,
6But he the Mother's, full of grace;
7And yet the heavenly kingdom is
8     Of such as this.
