Happy Mother’s Day Poems
To all the great moms, here are three of the best poems to recognize your greatness.
To My Mother by Robert Louise Stevenson
You too, my mother, read my rhymes
For love of unforgotten times,
And you may chance to hear once more
The little feet along the floor.
Child and mother by Eugene Field
O mother-my-love, if you’ll give me your hand,
And go where I ask you to wander,
I will lead you away to a beautiful land,–
The Dreamland that’s waiting out yonder.
We’ll walk in a sweet posie-garden out there,
Where moonlight and starlight are streaming,
And the flowers and the birds are filling the air
With the fragrance and music of dreaming.
There’ll be no little tired-out boy to undress,
No questions or cares to perplex you,
There’ll be no little bruises or bumps to caress,
Nor patching of stockings to vex you;
For I’ll rock you away on a silver-dew stream
And sing you asleep when you’re weary,
And no one shall know of our beautiful dream
But you and your own little dearie.
And when I am tired I’ll nestle my head
In the bosom that’s soothed me so often,
And the wide-awake stars shall sing, in my stead,
A song which our dreaming shall soften.
So, Mother-my-Love, let me take your dear hand,
And away through the starlight we’ll wander,–
Away through the mist to the beautiful land,–
The Dreamland that’s waiting out yonder.
The Song of the Old Mother by William Butler Yeats
I rise in the dawn, and I kneel and blow
Till the seed of the fire flicker and glow;
And then I must scrub and bake and sweep
Till stars are beginning to blink and peep;
And the young lie long and dream in their bed
Of the matching of ribbons for bosom and head,
And their day goes over in idleness,
And they sigh if the wind but lift a tress:
While I must work because I am old,
And the seed of the fire gets feeble and cold.
Son, did you say a prayer before eating.
No sir, I didn’t have to. My mom is a good cook.
Q: Why do kangaroos hate rainy days?
A: The kids have to play inside.
Q: What does “minimum” mean?
A: A small mother.

Origin of Mother’s Day Holiday
A day to celebrate moms was pioneered by the ancient Romans and Greeks. In many countries, it has been modernized.
When Anna M. Jarvis was 41 years old, her mother passed away. On the second anniversary of her Mom’s death – the second May Sunday in the year 1908 – Jarvis communicated her plans to establish a Mother’s Day in recognition of moms.
President Woodrow Wilson made it official in 1914 when he signed a proclamation as the second Sunday of May being a day for “public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.” 2018 will be the 104th anniversary of that proclamation.
When is Mothers Day?
Mother’s Day in 2018 will be Sunday, May 13. So, if you’re asking the question, “When is Mothers Day 2018?,” you have an answer: the second Sunday in May which in 2018 falls on May 13.
In many Arab countries, it is celebrated on the Spring Equinox – March 21. For Ireland and the United Kingdom, it’s observed on the fourth Sunday in Lent and called Mothering Sunday. In 2018, it falls on March 11. India celebrates Mother’s Day on May 13.
Happy Mother’s Day in Spanish is: Feliz día de la madre.
