    My mother

    Is nice and gay.

    She always wants

    To play. Sometimes

    Though she’s cross

    At me, but that is

    How a mom should

    Be. When I fall

    And skin my knee,

    Then she’s like

    A nurse to me.

    She is often by

    My side when

    I feel lonely

    Inside.

    My mom is nice, my mom is

    Sweet, my mom is truly

    A special treat. She’s

    Loving and kind and I love her. Her voice is like

    A kitten’s purr. How I love

    Her—my mother.

    Lorie Funk,
    Age 8,

    Mesa, Arizona.
