For Mother with Love
In a loving tribute, this beautiful collection of poems and prose celebrates motherhood. From our infancy, through the pain and pleasure of learning and growing, each of us has a mother to thank for accompanying us on our journey be it our birth mother or that special caring person whom we love and who loved us, who oversaw our growth to full adulthood. Here are the voices of poets such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Phyllis McGinley and Nikki Giovanni that reflect on the special gifts of mothers, and perceptive observations on motherhood from Abraham Lincoln, Washington Irving, Oscar Wilde and many others. This a gift to share with the mother in your life; to thank her for her never-ending and all-encompassing love and to celebrate that unbreakable bond between mother and child which gives us courage to face an uncertain and inconstant world.
