Happy Mother’s Day


AGATHA: But in the night time
And in the nether world
Where the meshes we have woven
Bind us to each other
Follow follow

MARY: A curse is written
On the under side of things
Behind the smiling mirror
And behind the smiling moon
Follow follow

AGATHA: This was the pilgrimage
Of expiation
Round and round the circle
Completing the charm
So the knot be unknotted
The cross be uncrossed
The crooked be made straight
And the curse be ended
By intercession
By pilgrimage
By those who depart
In several directions
For their own redemption
And that of the departed–
May they rest in peace.

[Exit to dinner.]

T.S. Eliot, The Family Reunion.
