Mary Dow Brine Poems

Somebody's Mother

The woman was old and ragged and gray,
And bent with the chill of a winter's day;
The streets were white with a recent snow,


Creatures of golden, sunshiny weather,
Coquetting with blossoms for hours together!

Twilight On The Beach

The crimson glory of the setting sun
Hath lain a moment on the ocean's breast,
Till twilight shadows, gathering one by one,

Easter Lilies

Oh! beautiful lilies, so fair and sweet,
Ye opened your leaves for the Easter morn,
And helped us rejoice that the winter had passed,

The Living Spring

Like the ever-living spring
Whose waters freely flow
Tho' lake and river, brook and stream,
Are sealed by winter's snow:

This rendition of the poem somebody's mother is not exactly as it was taught in school around 1946.

This poem has many mistakes. A lot of the wording is wrong. I have the copy from Best Loved Books of The American People. Look it up. It's a wonderful poem.
