  1. Offering A Tribute
    Poet: Cornella Frances Douglass

    In offering a tribute to mother today,
    There is joy that we cannot express
    Her kindness and love we can never repay,
    Though we strive to do always our best.

    She labors that home may be pleasant and sweet,
    A place like no other,
    But it's ever her presence that makes it complete,
    For what would home be without mother?



  2. I send this tribute just to you Thank you, Mom, for all you do I can best describe you this way I spell your name upside down and say I think of you this way, let me show you how: MOM is now changed to a WOW!



  3. My Mother
    Poet: Kenneth Merry


    When pain and sickness make me cry,
    Who wept for fear that I might die?
    My Mother!

    She works and saves and plans for me,
    To bring me up as a man should be,
    My Mother!

    She corrects my faults day after day,
    And tries to show me the better way,
    My Mother!

    I'll try to go straight for your dear sake,
    And bless my God that he did make,
    My Mother.




  4. Mother, a word spoken softly by angels, was first breathed in heaven above; How can we best define it - 'tis a synonym for love. Pearl F. Brown




  5. Tribute To A Mother
    Poet: Louisa May Alcott


    Faith that withstood the shocks of toil and time;
    Hope that defied despair;
    Patience that conquered care;
    And loyalty, whose courage was sublime;
    The great deep heart that was a home for all -
    Just, eloquent, and strong
    In protest against wrong;
    Wide charity, that knew no sin, no fail;
    The Spartan spirit that made life so grand,
    Mating poor daily needs
    With high, heroic deeds,
    That wrested happiness from Fate's hard hand.



  6. When She Was Near
    Poet: Nixon Waterman


    My mother's heart was honey,
    And her kiss was sweetest balm.
    And, though the world was full of storm,
    Her lap was full of calm.
    Her arms and breast were filled with rest,
    Her smile was full of joy.
    And life was dear when she was near
    And I a little boy.

    The world is full of golden gifts.
    And yet my spirit sighs
    Between the gracious long agoes
    And happy by and byes.
    I am aweary of the cares
    That fill the lives of men;
    I would I were a little child
    Within those arms again.

    For my mother's heart was honey,
    And her kiss was sweetest balm.
    And, though the world was full of storm.
    Her lap was full of calm.
    Her arms and breast were filled with rest.
    Her smile was full of joy,
    And life was dear when she was near
    And I a little boy.
