    I have not researched the date she wrote this poem, but I feel she knows she is expecting one of her two children when she wrote this one, and she is happy about being pregnant. I like this poem, because most of her poetry is so dark and sad, but I can see she had hopes for the baby she carries here, and love for her baby here. She is thinking of her child and not herself at this point in her life. (Report) Reply
