Mother [Children’s Poems]

Print Share
    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

    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.
