ďGod Could Not Be Everywhere,

So He Created Mothers.Ē

Jewish Proverb

If life has got you down and out

And youíve forgotten how to smile

Pause in your hectic fast paced world

And watch a motherís love of child

There is nothing more spectacular

There is nothing more sublime

Then gazing at the miracle of birth

Through a motherís love divine

Iíve watched in awe and admiration

As tiny sparrows emerged from their shells

And their loving motherís eyes were sparkling

As her tiny feathered chest began to swell

Iíve observed a diligent mother osprey

Exhaustedly fishing from dawn to dusk

To nourish her ravenous newborn babies

Because in her heart she knew she must

And Iíve sat completely mesmerized for hours

Watching felines tend their helpless kittens

Their love for their offspring is so absolute

That by their devotion Iím always smitten

These mothers hardly ever rest or eat

Their children are their only thought

As they pull and tug on their exhausted bodies

No assistance or relief have they ever sought

They never scold or snarl at them

They only pamper coo and purr

They comfort them 24 hours a day

And from their nurturing never stir

Whether their numerous babies are born in a castle

Or in a tiny nest theyíve diligently made a home

Or in a dark back alley garbage dumpster

From their duties they seldom ever roam

A motherís love is truly miraculous

And observing it much joy can bring

Itís another reason I love this time of year

A motherís love truly blossoms†every Spring

If life has got you down and out

And youíve forgotten how to smile

Pause in your hectic fast paced world

And watch a motherís love of child

You would have done your mother well! and sharing the joy of mother's love.Mom's are so special & you did them tribute.

Well, you ole bulldog, you really did yourself proud with this one.
I recall telling you once that you had a sensitive side. Guess I read you pretty well.
This is a beautiful poem, and you are right, there is nothing more special than a mother who loves her children, whether human, fowl, or animal. My kind of poem- my kind of person. I bet your mom was wonderful. She had someone who has a kind spirit like you do.

Ed This is absolutely
an awesome piece
A wonderful write
I've watched a robin nest
under my balcony,
a tood guard till her ckicks
left an empty nest
made sure my grandson's
nutty friends stayed away
from them.

Another beauty Eddie, if only humanity would learn to do the same this world would be a better one. It would be what a man who came into a city while people waved palms, was teaching. Thank you !;-)

Another teaching poem. It's so true, Ed. I believe we learn much from observing nature. I think the creator has revealed both himself and us in nature's movement around us. You pen winners. ~~Nordette

Perfect love is this... it is completely giving, and yet, when time comes to let go for the sake of growth, it does, and encourages the growth. But remains and blossoms again and again, in spring and through all seasons, even - sometimes most especially - in long, long winters.
Just what it did to Ed Matlack, it did to me... and does every time I read a poem like this in the book of nature. Thank you, gentle Poet.

LOVE the Jewish proverb!! And ED!!!!!!! It's too early to get me blubbing all over again, and too early for a glass of wine to cheer me up! I've just packed off my little 19-yr old girl on her first independent holiday since she became sick 6 years' ago... well, here I go, then, blub, blub... so where's the corkscrew...
