A Mother's Fame, which is the
response to this poem from the daughter.
Mother's Day, Family
Abraham Lincoln's said to have stated
At one time or another
That all he was or hoped to be
He owed to his "angel mother".
Little Moses had a mother
Who was very clever and wise
She hid him in a little boat
And gave Pharoah's daughter a real surprise.
We're all familiar with the paintings
Hanging in galleries here and there
Of Mr. Whistler's dear old Mother
Sitting in her rocking chair.
Even Jesus had a mother
Who guided Him thru tender years
And when they nailed Him to the cross
It must have caused her grief and tears.
Now I know another mother
Who'll not go down in history
But is more important than ALL the rest
'Cause SHE belongs to ME!
