    The last lines show all the simple yet complicated strands of family transmission. Very nicely put indeed. Thanks for it. Hope your mother saw this poem. (Report) Reply

    Many people, including myself, don't give enough thought to our mothers... we don't realize all that they have done for us... This is a wonderful writing, and it's actually quite funny because I have been thinking a lot about the people that influence and care for us the most- family. I really enjoyed reading this one.

    Simply beautiful - a most thoughtful and heartfelt tribute from a son to his mother - real lump in throat stuff here...words any mother would cherish. jxx (Report) Reply

    As wide as the ocean
    As deep as the sea,
    As high as the heavens
    is her love for her child..................a fine tribute to the soul whose love and care is responsible for our existence....,
    She plays her part well and now is the responsibility of the children to show their gratitude...and you do it so well....
    the poem also reflects your personality...a kind, gentle and truly humane. liked the sentiment of the words too much...

    Stunning mark of respect from clearly someone who appreciates the love and guidance shared by a parent in order to keep us boisterous lot on track.

    Great piece, definitely one for a mothers day card....10/10


    Stay strong my friend

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;
