Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all Mums.  Have a beautiful Day.


Two little graphics I made a few years ago.

A poem I wrote also below. I saw this photo of a mother and baby, that inspired me to make the graphic and write a poem.


     
    The night was dark, I was drawn to the attic,
    And there I sat on the dusty old box
    My mind wandering back in the past,
    To the sweet lady that's in my locket.

    Complexion of peaches and cream,
    Eyes that always smiled,
    Colour bluer than the day time sky,
    Brighter than a star.

    She walked each path of life with pride,
    Head always held high,
    Always smiled,
    I thought of the sweet lady that's in my locket
    With the young one by her side.

    Today I remember her, today is her day,
    - I always remember her -
    For she is my mother, and I am that child,
    In the locket.

      I like writing poetry when the words come - that is kind of Irish!
