Noll Sends You "Mother's Day" Remembrances

"Portrait of Kareen" by Alex Szabo
-----------
"On the Flowers She Picked"
----
~In Springtime~
Tidy nosegays of speckled lilies, pink spring beauties, violets or,
wild geraniums, red and white trillium,
glistening buttercups.
-----
~In Summertime~
Carefree bunches of white daisies, blue chicory, Queen Anne's lace,
milkweed spilling milky sap and,
long strands of grass gone to seed.
----
~In Fall~
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;
----
~the gathering~
~the giving~
~or the light leaping from her mother's eyes?~
-------
"Happy Mother's Day" to you Mom
and to all Moms everywhere.
