Happy Mother's Day - Poem by David Grzan

Love sanctifies acts of forgiveness,
Flourishes in the presence of respect,
Creates miracles of natal quickness:
Credits to a mother's bearing aspect.
Mother's birth their babies and vice versa—
Both conceived in love, by love, to be loved:
Acts of Love in the main to minutia
Assures that her love's labor's gains are proved.
A mother's legacy from rearing hers
Rests in the begetting of their success:
God's gift of grandchildren when it occurs
Crowns her blessings with glorified address.
A mother's children are the dividends
Of her husband's love that ever attends.

Topic(s) of this poem: love, mothers day, respect

    A good effort with some good lines and some not so good lines, but the language is not simplistic and some lines are bathed with much poetry.
    Take care!
