Mothers Day Poems Quotes and Verses

A Mother Casts Her Dreams into the Sea
A mother casts her dreams into the sea;
We, the words sent bobbing towards the sun,
The eggs of stone, the shards of prophesy.

Because she must conclude her melody

And fall back to the sweet dark hush of One,

A mother casts her dreams into the sea,

Hoping to cross that wild infinity
And on some infant shore again to run,
The eggs of stone, the shards of prophesy

Outside the fiery circle of memory,
The howling surf, the incessant years undone ...
A mother casts her dreams into the sea

And then dissolves into a tapestry,
Her rolling, helpless drift again begun,
The eggs of stone, the shards of prophesy

Afloat once more upon eternity,
Once more the alien fury, never done ...
Again, again, her dreams into the sea,
The eggs of stone, the shards of prophesy!
A Mother Ought Not Bear Alone Her Burden

A mother ought not bear alone her burden,

Unaided in the task of mothering.
Nor ought one person with a life be laden,
There being too much risk of smothering.

So aunts must serve the purpose of anothering.
A Mother's Love Determines How

A mother's love determines how

We love ourselves and others.
There is no sky we'll ever see
Not lit by that first love.
Stripped of love, the universe
Would drive us mad with pain;
But we are born into a world
That greets our cries with joy.

How much I owe you for the kiss

That told me who I was!
The greatest gift--a love of life--
Lay laughing in your eyes.

Because of you my world still has

The soft grace of your smile;
And every wind of fortune bears

The scent of your caress.
A Villanelle for Mother's Day

A villanelle for Mother's Day

Should take me just about an hour:
Writing it is child's play.
Because I know just what to say,
And rhyming's quite within my power,
To write it should be child's play.

Yet plain speech is not my way:

I look for leaves to shade my flower,
This villanelle for Mother's Day.

I do not wish to sound too fey,

Obscure, mystic, gushy, sour--
Arggh! Writing's never child's play!

Yes, childish! To my dismay,

Far beyond the allotted hour,
This villanelle for Mother's Day

Dawdles on. Let me just say

It plain: I love you, and so end our
Villanelle for Mother's Day.

(Well ... writing it was child's play.)
Although a Daughter, I Write This as a Mother

Although a daughter, I write this as a mother.

We're both mothers now, of child-daughters:
You, a grandmother forced to be a mother,
And I, a widow, alone with my fatherless daughter.
Death has thus shaped both our lives in ways
We would not have chosen. Yet life is still the bright,
Painfully lovely thing it was always:
Our children like dancers on a dark, splendid night,
Needing our loves as I needed yours; your love
The same song as ever, a lullaby I remember
So well from my time in your arms. We move
In slow spirals towards the stars. September
Has weeks like June, yet is closer to the fall.
Love has no answers, yet its beauty answers all.
