Sylvia Plath - Morning Song

"Love set you going like a fat gold watch" (Plath 200).

The poem is about a mother and her new born child.  However, my favorite line of the entire poem is the first line. 

No one truly realizes how much babies cost until they have one.  This is a funny quote because it's comparing the cost of a child to a fat gold watch. 

The line "One cry, and I stumble from my bed..." is sweet because every mother always talks about how they just have a mother's instint.  They know when something is upsetting their child. And no matter in how deep of sleep a mother is in she'll wake up to her child crying. 

It is a sweet poem about mother and child.
