A Loving Limerick to Mother and Matron

Post by Mandolo » Sun May 08, 2016 1:19 pm

There was a woman that gave birth,
To a child that often ignored her worth.
But time passed on by,
And a man, became I.
As I see now, she's the salt of the earth.


Happy Mother's Day, and I hope you all took time to make sure that the mothers in your life understand their worth. Though, probably not in awful poetry like me.

Oh, thanks. I appreciate it. Wrote it myself, reflecting on my childhood. I was never really appreciative of my mother until I grew older, but as I grew into my teen years, I started to recognize that she was a wonderful and good person, only looking to my best interests. She is, as I described, the salt of the earth.

I'd done something longer, but honestly, not a lot of people appreciate poetry, especially longer ones. So, I did a limerick: short, sweet, simple.
