The Saint Mother


I didn't find any other,
Any one better than my mother, .
But my wife is also a mother,
My daughter is also a mother,
My grand daughter with her doll looks like a mother,
Every woman is a mother.

Even if she could not give birth to a child,
She is never cruel, never unkind,
She loves children of her brother,
She loves children of her sister,
Her love becomes universal and spreads like air,
Every woman is a saint mother.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
