"On the Flowers She Picked"
Tidy nosegays of speckled lilies, pink spring beauties, violets or,
wild geraniums, red and white trillium,
Carefree bunches of white daisies, blue chicory, Queen Anne's lace,
milkweed spilling milky sap and,
long strands of grass gone to seed.
Sturdy bouquets of purple asters, plump cattails and,
yellow ragweed, goldenrod.
In those fair seasons,
for a child carrying
color, fragrance, love,
It's impossible to say
What was the greater joy;
~or the light leaping from her mother's eyes?~
"Happy Mother's Day" to you Mom
and to all Moms everywhere.
