My Mother was a Herbalist
Who lived to ninety five
And with her pills and potions
She kept us all alive!
'A dose of Mother's remedies
Would wipe each tear'
Rachel Ann Butler
Gosh! You have an entire health guide there. Nature surely is the best guide, teacher &healer.I too am an ardent fan of Ayurveda(an ancient science of medicine that is more than a thousand year old that uses natural herbs) .Your Mom is worth her salts.Thanks for sharing!
Great tribute to a mom and her abilities. I hope you share her wisdom with your children.
Excellent piece an nice remembrance of your mother. It sounds like she was a very wise mother and took care of her family well.
a wonderful poem sir. lovely XAXA rhyming scheme. lovely rhythym. fine piece.. something for all.. with the exception of the two stanza where you have BABA, that kind of threw of the flow by the inserted rhymes in the first and third line.. it's perfect! ! !
Dearest John, A great tribute to your mother! and I'm sure this is how are forefathers and mothers survived, with their knowledge of nature and love of family and earth.I found this very informative as well.I must say I had never thought of writing about herbs but you have done a wonderful lovely job of it. I look forward to your posts.Myrtle Thomas
