Mother's day poems


You Know Me


Mom you know the worst of me,

My weaknesses and follies,

I know you’ve seen me poop my pants

and cut the heads off dollies.


You know all my most embarrassing moments,

You know that I’m a nut,

So what can I do to repay your love

and make sure you keep your mouth shut!?


— Holly Giffers



A Dandelion For My Mother


How I loved those spiky suns,

rooted stubborn as childhood

in the grass, tough as the farmer’s

big-headed children—the mats

of yellow hair, the bowl-cut fringe.

How sturdy they were and how

slowly they turned themselves

into galaxies, domes of ghost stars

barely visible by day, pale

cerebrums clinging to life on tough green stems. Like you.

Like you, in the end. If you were here,

I’d pluck this trembling globe to show

how beautiful a thing can be

a breath will tear away.


— Jean Nordhaus



Rock Me To Sleep


Mother, dear Mother, the years have been long

Since I last listened your lullaby song:

Sing, then, and unto my soul it shall seem

Womanhood’s years have been only a dream.

Clasped to your heart in a loving embrace,

With your light lashes just sweeping my face,

Never hereafter to wake or to weep;

Rock me to sleep, mother, rock me to sleep!


— Elizabeth Akers Allen
