MOTHERS DAY POEMS FOR MOM

Great Program Starter

This next poem can be used as a welcome message in a mothers day program.  It is easy to read and easy to memorize.  Most Mothers Day programs start off with a few words to  welcome all the mothers in attendance. This bit of poetry was used many times throughout the years in many of our Mothers Day salutes.

A WELCOME


No smiles too brigfht to welcome now

Our mothers on their day;

Upon each gracious mothers brow

A tribute fair we lay.


With precious blossoms of the heart

A garland sweet we twine:

A mothers welcome we impart

For they are gifts devine!


So welcome welcome mothers all,

We pray gods blessings true

Upon your pathways ever fall

Your whole long lifetime through.



FAITH


How beautiful a mother's faith

That looks to God in prayer,

That leans on him for guidance wise

For help with trail and care;

A down the path of years it gleams,

And lightens every way:

A beacon set to led us on

To God's eternal day.


How beautiful a mother's faith

That sees beyond the years

And waits the power of love devine

To banish doubts and fears:

A flame that burns with lasting light

Is motherhoods' blest prayer:

God grant it set the world afire

With glory everywhere!



A FAVORITE POET OF MINE

This poem written by the famous poet Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

This is a rugged old bit of poetry. Most of the young boys and young men seem to like. I was introduced to his writings when I was a young girl. I have enjoyed his poetry throughout highschool and college and even now.

MOTHER O' MINE


If I were hanged on the highest hill,

Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!

I know who's love would follow me still,

Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!

If I were drowned in the deepest sea,

Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!

I know who's tears would come down to me,

Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!

If I were damned by body and soul,

I know whose prayers would make me whole,

Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!

Rudyard Kipling.
