What Mother Means – by Karl Fuchs

“Mother” is such a simple word,

But to me there’s meaning seldom heard.

For everything I am today,

My mother’s love showed me the way.

To My Mother – by Christina Rossetti

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.

My Mother – by Ann Taylor

Who ran to help me when I fell,

And would some pretty story tell,

Or kiss the place to make it well?

My mother.

Tribute to Mother- by John Greenleaf Whittier

A picture memory brings to me;

I look across the years and see

Myself beside my mother’s knee.

I feel her gentle hand restrain

My selfish moods, and know again

A child’s blind sense of wrong and pain.

But wiser now, a man gray grown,

My childhood’s needs are better known.

My mother’s chastening love I own.

the sun and her flowers- by Rupi Kaur

this is the recipe of life

said my mother

as she held me in her arms as i wept

think of those flowers you plant

in the garden each year

they will teach you

that people too

must sit




in order to bloom

Nayyirah Waheed, “lands” from Salt




my first country.

The first place I ever lived.

Rupi Kaur, “I Will Have to Wait Until I’m a Mother” from Milk and Honey

i struggle so deeply

to understand

how someone can

pour their entire soul

blood and energy

into someone

without wanting

anything in
