Mothers Day Poems
To My Mother
Poet - Edgar Allan Poe
Because I feel that, in the Heavens above,
The angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of "Mother,"
Therefore by that dear name I long have called you -
You who are more than mother unto me,
And fill my heart of hearts, where Death installed you,
In setting my Virginia's spirit free.
My mother - my own mother, who died early,
Was but the mother of myself; but you
Are mother to the one I loved so dearly,
And thus are dearer than the mother I knew
by that infinity with which my wife
Was dearer to my soul than its soul-life.
"Rejecting things because they are old-fashion would
rule out the sun and the moon-
and a mother's love."
"I love old mothers- mothers with white hair,
And kindly eyes, and lips grown softly sweet
With murmured blessings over sleeping babes."
"I look back on my childhood and thank the stars above.
For everything you gave me, but mostly for your love."
Wayne F. Winters
"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie."
"There are no sick days for Mother."
