Mothers - Poem by Calvin M. Lake

A mother's love, a Mother's care,
A mother's sigh, a Mother's prayer
A Mother's work, and Mother's day,
Leaves little time for any play.

A godly Mother with godly love,
Is treasure from God above,
A godly Mother with godly above,
A godly Mother with godly care,
Has God's help when she sighs a prayer.

    the repetition goes very well in the first stanza but it doesn't work as well in the second. But the overall idea is good. (Report) Reply
