A mothers lullaby


Shadows whisper in the dark of the night
Babies cry out in fright
They are afraid and only one thing

    HI Ashley
    This is penned with so much tenderness and security that only comes from a mother's quiet soft voice that is either instilled in all of us, or for some the absence of it, which can bring many perplexing emotions, I enjoyed this as it represents all that a mother can do for her children to make them who they are today...... Enjoyed very much and hope you are doing well...

    The sentiments of a parent are highlighted here in all dexterity and your skill of saying so much in such few words is amazing. ARya (Report) Reply

    I bet Peerbocus really liked this one. I sure did as well. This is a 10.
    It is a 10 because it is a poem that is as simple and directed as all great things
    are at their core. I hope other readers will take note of this poem. It is a great
    learning tool.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
