Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! Here’s a poem I wrote a LONG time ago for my own mother. Enjoy!


 

Mother Earth

by Diane Graebner

 

There’s a reason we call it “Mother Earth,”
This planet that nurtured, and gave us birth.
 
For a mother gives of herself when a child is there
Her pain; her hope; her love; her prayers.
 
And each creature, each flower, each plant and stone
Is a gift from our “mother”, to call our own.
 
For like the Earth, a mother’s gifts
Are part of her soul; are what she is.
 
A mother’s love, a mother’s song,
A mother’s milk and arm so strong
 
Are all there to guide; To protect and provide
 
From a child’s youngest days.
 
And as that child grows, and flies from the nest,
A mothers prayers are the armor that makes every test
Though difficult, a task none the less
Attainable.
 
A mother’s shoulder is also there
To cry on, or to ease any care
 
That burdens a child in any way.
 
So to my mothers, both of you true,
“Mother Earth”, and mother — you.
 
I give back some of what was given to me
I give back my soul, my life to thee.
 
And when I hear a bird’s sweet song
Or smell a flower, or ponder long
 
Over cloud, or sunset, or the sun’s heat strong.
 
I’ll think of my mother, and though we’re apart
I’ll always have her in my heart.

Mother and Diane
