Let's Hear it for the Girls :: Happy Mother's Day :: I Heart Faces

Tribute to Mother


A picture memory brings to me;
I look across the years and see
Myself beside my mother's knee.
I feel her gentle hand restrain
My selfish moods, and know again
A child's blind sense of wrong and pain.
But wiser now,
a man gray grown,
My childhood's needs are better known.
My mother's chastening love I own.

by John Greenleaf Whittier

Becky, I need more words to explain what I mean when I write the word "beautiful". You probably get tired of me coming here and saying the same old thing! Your loving eyes see the beauty I often miss.

I loved the poem too.
