She put her eager hands about my life
And led me out into the bright new day ...
The clean, cool wind blew through my laughing hair
All wonder glowed upon my waiting face ...
She taught me how to love the great, tall things
We practiced how the robin tells his soul ...
She showed me how a rain-pool holds the world
How I could give a sunset-full of love!


  1. Margie,
    This is so beautiful! I love it. Another thing that your mother taught you was to be the wonderful mother that you are. That was her gift to you!

  2. Hi Margie-

    wonderful tribute in your poem. I feel so lucky that my Mom is still here - she will be 86 come this November - and she is truly my most precious gift.

    Love Gail

  3. That is a beautiful tribute, I do love your poetry Margie! She sounds wonderful. I just lost my Dad in May, cherish every moment you have as I am sure you do. Take care.

  4. Mother, my only true love.

  8. Hey Margie....

    Mothers..... I have nothing left to sat 'bout that....they are angels......

    Margie... I've gotta confront you.... see after reading Keshi's goodbye.... I am undoubtedly prepared to leave....the charms gone....the dreams have eroded....and I feel like my blog is turning into a burden....and I don't want it to be like I am leaving infinitely......

    But before I go Margie... I'd like to tell are the most pure and true person I know... I think that you truely have a heart of never ever sell it... :D :P...

    I wish we could remain in contact.....any ideas how to???

    Take care.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  10. You are very lucky to have such a mother.
    And you cause me to reflect on what my mother has given me. thanks

  11. Margie...

    what a beautiful tribute to your mom... what a lovely heart she grew in you... what a wonderful time of celebration, especially this time of year... to honor and celebrate you both for your birthday... :)


  12. your words always have a special charm about them...

    my mother is also almost 86 and we are like best friends - I cannot imagine my world without her - since we are both alone now, we share so much more.

    it's sad and tragic to lose a mother young, yet the longer I have mine here, the more I believe she is invincible and immortal

    I have tried to raise my children to only have good memories of their old ma and to leave a legacy of love

  13. Mother is the one, whoes lap we churn. She's the goddess, she's the prowess.
    nice one.

  14. Beautiful poem, Margie :)

    lovely, it reminds me so much of my mother,


  15. A most beautiful tribute - to life given and held in celebration and gratitude.

  16. Your words about your mother are inspiring and very sweet. You are blessed.
