Nobody Knows But Mother

Poet: Mary Morrison

How many buttons are missing today?
Nobody knows but Mother.
How many playthings are strewn in her way?
Nobody knows but Mother.
How many thimbles and spools has she missed?
How many burns on each fat little fist?
How many bumps to be cuddled and kissed?
Nobody knows but Mother.

How many hats has she hunted today?
Nobody knows but Mother.
Carelessly hiding themselves in the hay -
Nobody knows but Mother.
How many handkerchiefs willfully strayed?
How many ribbons for each little maid?
How for her care can a mother be paid?
Nobody knows but Mother.

How many muddy shoes all in a row?
Nobody knows but Mother.
How many stockings to darn, do you know?
Nobody knows but Mother.
How many little torn aprons to mend?
How many hours of toil must she spend?
What is the time her day's work shall end?
Nobody knows but Mother.

How many cares does a mother's heart know?
Nobody knows but Mother.
How many joys from her mother love flow?
Nobody knows but Mother.
How many prayers for each little white bed?
How many tears for her babes has she shed?
How many kisses for each curly head?
Nobody knows but Mother.

Just One Little Day
Poet: Bobby Burns

Why pick out just one little day
That to our memories may recall,
The one who did the most for us
And we love best of all?

Let's make every day her day
None different than the others,
For everything we have today
Is by her birthright mother's.

She is your pal, our greatest friend -
You'll never find one better,
If you're away sit down today
And write your Ma a letter.

Don't simply say "I'm feeling fine
And hope you are the same."
Show her that every word you write
from down your best heartthrob came.

Far better than any letter -
If you're not too far away -
Make your plan so you can
All day with mother stay.

To you who still have mother
There's just one thing to say,
You have a wonderful treasure
But she'll be gone some day.

So I've ordered a wreath of roses
Tied with heavy golden twine
To place on her grave in memory
Of that dear old mother of mine.

Forsake not the law of thy mother. In her tongue is the law of kindness.
Her candle goeth not out by night. Love is the fulfilling of the law.
Hold fast the - sound words - in faith and love. I will teach you the good and the right.

Always doing things for others, now and every day.
