A Simple Contrast


For my lovely mother....

On Mother's Day I have written a poem for you.  In the interest of poetic economy and truth, I have succeeded in concentrating my deepest feelings and beliefs into two perfectly crafted lines:  You're my mother, I would have no other!  ~Forest Houtenschil

  7. Nice poem. This is the poem my hubby wrote to his mom when he was 6 or 7 yrs old:

    Roses stink
    and so do you!

    He doesn't write poetry to her anymore but she never let's him forget that one!
