Subject(s): Mothers


Mothers are such lovely things,
I wonder they do not have wings!
Their tender bodies cradle us,
For us they sound pain's deepest seas;
We learn of God, we learn to pray
At Mothers' knees!

Mothers are such lovely things,
I wonder they do not have wings!
They guard our helpless years with love,
Their loving arms are childhood's nest,
They dry our tears, and to our wounds
Their lips are pressed!

Mothers are such lovely things,
I wonder they do not have wings!
We may forget, slight them, and scorn,
Their love lives on ever the same.
We may go down, be steeped in sin;
They hide our shame!

Mothers are such lovely things!
I wonder they do not have wings!
