Sunday is Mother's Day. I hope that you'll remember your mom and all the other moms out there.
Now, I'll say this. I actually write a little poetry from time to time (though not much lately), and nobody has ever read it - and that fact will never change.
However, English poet Christina Rossetti, who lived in the 1800's has written some beautiful poems, some of which reflect strong emotions for her mother. I share this one - a shortish one - but a powerful poem.
I hope you enjoy it - doubly so for you mothers out there.
Happy Mother's Day.
Sonnets are full of love by Christina Rossetti
Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome
Has many sonnets: so here now shall be
One sonnet more, a love sonnet, from me
To her whose heart is my heart’s quiet home,
To my first Love, my Mother, on whose knee
I learnt love-lore that is not troublesome;
Whose service is my special dignity,
And she my loadstar while I go and come
And so because you love me, and because
I love you, Mother, I have woven a wreath
Of rhymes wherewith to crown your honored name:
In you not fourscore years can dim the flame
Of love, whose blessed glow transcends the laws
Of time and change and mortal life and death.
