God's Masterpiece is Mothers
by: Herbert Farnham
God took pieces of everything wonderful to make moms.
God took the fragrance of a flower . . .
The majesty of a tree . . .
The gentleness of morning dew . . .
The calm of a quiet sea . . .
The beauty of the twilight hour . . .
The soul of a starry night . . .
The laughter of a rippling brook . . .
The grace of a bird in flight . . .
Then God fashioned from these things
A creation like no other,
And when his masterpiece was through
He called it simply - Mother
When I read this poem given to me as a gift, I thought it was wonderful!
