Mother-Daughter Love


Among the daisies
sat the child,
looking so ever
meek and mild.

Mother sat down
by the child,
looked at her daughter
and sweetly smiled.

Picking the daisies
with the child,
from those gathered
a chain was stylized.

Around the neck
of the child,
she placed the chain
of daisies wild.

Touching the daisies
the deaf child,
looked at her mother
and sweetly smiled.
