poem from the past

I’m so glad I found this poem online! I memorized it when I was a kid, to recite to my mom on Mother’s Day. Every word is still true:

Only One Mother
Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather.
Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the world wide over.

What’s your favorite e-reader?
