Poems for Mothering Sunday

 

"To My Mother,"

You too, my mother, read my rhymes

For love of unforgotten times,

And you may chance to hear once more

The little feet along the floor

(Robert Louis Stevenson)


"To My Mother," 

To-day's your natal day;

Sweet flowers I bring:

Mother, accept, I pray

My offering.

And may you happy live,

And long us bless:

Receiving as you give

Great happiness.

(Christina Rossetti)


Roses are red,

Violets are blue.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Sorry you didn't give birth to a poet who could rhyme!
