More than the beauty of the narrative, it is the profound lesson taught by a mother to her son without inflicting any blow to this young man's dignity. The poet has done a great job. Thanks.
That's what mothers are and should be, irrespective of any difference. Mother is the best as well as first teacher to any being. I salute our mother for being just that. Thanks for sharing.
My mother, incredibly sweet, incredibly bright
Swallowed her anger but asked in a voice, slightly tight
Please consider for a minute or two
How you would feel if someone did this to you.
Deep in my mind, I considered this plig these are the most beautiful lines in this poem. and your reacton Mother Mother................ soooooooo lovely
Only a few minutes later, it is hard to believe
My cousin was called and he had to leave
This left us alone, that beautiful car, and me
The temptation was great, as great as could be,
I could not resist and became a thieve
