This sweet poem was copied from Mermaid Debbie's Grandma Mila's Ideals Mother's Day issue, 1950.
By Frank Carleton Nelson
This is the day we honor "Mother"
Sweetest name of tongue or pen,
And we pay our highest tribute
And we pledge our love again;
Songs of "Mother" we are singing,
Naught but tender words are said,
And it's Mother's flower we're wearing,
For the livng and the dead.
Grand and noble is the purpose,
Great the meaning of the day;
Inspiration seems to guide us
In the things we do and say.
Thoughts and words today are for her,
And the good that she has wrought,
Born of love and admiration for the
Lessons she has taught.
Loftly purpose, noble meaning,
Sweetest day of all the year,
Only good is represented in the
Name of "Mother Dear."
And if right would rule the nations
And the will of God be done,
We should follow Mother's teachings
Every day instead of one.
