Happy Mother's Day -- a mother's day poem

Gregory K.

I made my mom a giant card
With letters three feet tall
(I couldn’t find the paper
So I used the playroom wall).
Then I made her breakfast –
Trix and jam rolled up in bread!
I think she would’ve liked it,
But I spilled it on her bed.
Our neighbor grows great roses,
So I filled our biggest vase.
I wish you could’ve seen it –
What a look on Mommy’s face!
Our cuckoo clock chirped six A.M.
I said I’d go and play.
Then I told my mom I loved her…
And she said I’d made her day.

Great poem Greg! I think you might appreciate Lois Lowry's All About it he makes a wonderful perfume from all of his mom's favorite smells--collected in a jar, and saved. The combined smells only a mother could love. Fun chapter book to read aloud btw!

Nice poem. I think we should keep posting such lovable stuff for our Moms while Mother's Day is around.
