Gods can’t be everywhere
So born holy mothers are
The sole embodiment of spirit

    If the same mothers of our nations
    Could widen their narrow horizons
    And look at others’ babies as theirs’
    Free from feelings of caste and Creed
    And thoughts of being low or high
    And come smilingly forward
    To give solace and love to the tired
    Bones of the loveless and the abandoned
    Then the world around looks to everyone
    Much brighter and hopeful

    No need for other words, dear friend, you are one who brings a lovely breeze into my world, thank you! 10. (Report) Reply

    If you could, I bet you would 'mother' the world. I also bet you would be a good and loving mother. My favorite of your work. (Report) Reply

    Motherly touch to heifer............Rekhaji writes makes love to us
    If great mother Kali frightened injustice
    And Mother Mary sacrificed Jesus for Justice
    Who can forget mother Yashoda of Sri Krishan
    So also Mother Anjali of Lord Hanuman
    For their great love not only for their sons
    But to free the entire race of humans and Gods
    Don’t we honour their love for mankind? (Report) Reply

    Yes, this is a great poem on motherhood. Motherhood is always universal. But it is sad to see when some would be mothers get rid of their coming child. We have to bring an awareness in the society to restore the prestige of motherhood. A fine 10 for the theme of the poem. Thanks for sharing.....

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
