Poems, Songs, Quotations & Prayer

Profound, beautiful, sage or even lighthearted, lyrical words crystallize feelings of love and appreciation toward Mom in a festive, devotional and thankful manner. Many people, in fact, feel a natural urge to write verse or sing special songs on Mother’s Day—it almost can’t be helped. The holiday itself was even created with a poem!


A Mothers Day poem, whether from your own heart or the pen of another may simply strike a chord with either you or Mom. Use poetry to convey your thoughts and feelings about Mom or what she has meant to your life.

Here are a few of our favorites:

Ode to Mothers

Mothers cannot do it all
But surely do they try.

Mothers hear the angel's call,
To comfort all who cry.

Mothers for themselves may fall,
For others they will fly.

Mother's bear the weight of all,
For their children, they would die.

A Mother's gift extends beyond
All bounds of time and space.

Her lovingness and nurturing
Make Earth a peaceful place.

- Kristin F. McKendall


You've given me two things
One is roots
The other's wings

When Mother Reads Aloud

When Mother reads aloud, the past
Seems real as every day;
I hear the tramp of armies vast,
I see the spears and lances cast,
I join the thrilling fray;
Brave knights and ladies fair and proud
I meet when Mother reads aloud.

When Mother reads aloud, far lands
Seem very near and true;
I cross the deserts' gleaming sands,
Or hunt the jungle's prowling bands,
Or sail the ocean blue.
Far heights, whose peaks the cold mists shroud,
I scale, when Mother reads aloud.

When Mother reads aloud, I long
For noble deeds to do...
To help the right, redress the wrong;
It seems so easy to be strong,
So simple to be true.
Oh, thick and fast the visions crowd
My eyes, when Mother reads aloud.
