Number One Mother


She is number one
She is my mother
My one and only
Not like any other

A woman of strength
Just like the lovely rose
A special gift from God
You wouldn't dare to oppose

When she was formed
The mold was broken
She carried her load
And not just a token

A woman that's so full of grace
None can ever take her place
She is number one
She is my mother

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
