Mothers Day Poems

Mothers Day Poems

The tradition of honoring Mothers goes back to the Greeks and their celebrations of Rhea the mother of all their deities. The second Sunday in May was proclaimed as the official day to honor all mothers in the United States by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. With Mothers Day Cards and gifts we try to tell our Mothers what they mean to us.

Many have chosen the tradition of writing poems to celebrate the women who nurtured us. Words are used to express deep feelings and from the small child to the professional writer, great effort is put forth to honor in words the women we treasure. With a Mothers Day poem we endeavor to tell Mother how much we love her.

Many mothers can open a box that holds handwritten cards decorated with paper lace and hearts, mis-spelled words and crayon drawings. These precious mementos of their childs first efforts to say Happy Mothers Day, are treasures they keep for a lifetime.

Mothers Day cards may have become a big business, but to the woman who receives them the very fact she received it is worth more than a diamond ring. A poem filled with words that say her child feels loved and secure is more often than not the only time she will hear how much her sacrifices have meant. That is why each May we all sit down to write or search out already written poems to give she who deserves thanks.

Whatever gift that you have in mind, consider adding a poem to your present. Whether you find your poem inside a Mother’s Day card or write your own thoughtful verse, you’ll be surprised how much a Mother’s Day poem can reach the heart of your mother.

If you need ideas to get started with writing your poem, simply jot down attributes that you like about your mother. Words like kind, gentle, fun, pretty, and reliable can blossom into bigger words like thoughtful, smart, spirited, beautiful, and trustworthy. Once you have the adjectives that you’d like to use, now begin rhyming the words into a poem.

If you’re looking for inspiration, visit your nearest gift store or pharmacy. As you look through the many Mother’s Day cards, you’ll notice that each one is unique in expressing their own sentiment of appreciation.

Most importantly, a Mother’s Day poem should come from your heart. Even the fanciest verse won’t stand up to your own words of gratitude and love. Whether your poem is written to your own Mom, your sister, an aunt, or even a friend, know that your poem will be appreciated.
