Females At Boule Making
by simply Mary Gabrielle Collins
The term ‘minister' implies religious images
Almost comparing the women to god, in a sense that
They have the power to create life and are reffered to later On inside the poem while the ‘creator'
This reveals how searching afer kids as a
mom is her main goal
Their hands should minister unto the flame of life,
Their particular fngers guide
The rosy teat, swelling with dairy,
To the eager mouth of the suckling girl
Or easy with tenderness,
Sofly and soothingly,
The heated brow of the troubled child.
Or perhaps stray among the list of curls
Of the boy or girl, thrilling to mother love
The use of the word exciting shows how passionate
She personally is usually to be a ‘mother'
The poet is applying assonance to therefore
make a sofer develop
Which likewise makes the poem sound even more feminine
This kind of immediately changes the develop and shows a
contrast from the frst part of
The poem, this also can symbolize how the battle
has changed the women
This shows how culture
Thought women in general
Their hands, their fngers
Are coarsened in muniton factories.
This kind of shows the way the war features

Toughened the women
Like bees among the sweetest mind plants

Are bruised against the law,

Blames the government

Which, certainly during this dispensaton
Is the shrine of the spirit.
O The almighty!
Throughout the ages we have noticed,
Again and again
This kind of suggests that the war
Men by Thee created
Is certainly going against the guidelines normally
Rescheduling each other.
Set up, but it may also show
Just how war will go against religion
Here the poet is definitely is referring to all the other
Battles that have taken place and how they as girls
Have had to watch the men they have created
Eliminate each other ( This once again refers women as being
This suggests that Collins believes
that the conflict is futle
Suggests that previously women was ignorant
For the reality of War, Blinded by patriotsm and glory
And we have got marvelled on the seeming annihilaton
Of Thy work.
Nevertheless this goes further,
Taints the water feature head,
Brackets like a toxin to the Creator's very heart.
O Our god!
Must This anew be sacrifced in the world?
This seems like a cry
for the war to stop
