It is mother’s day here in the UK and all around the country people are celebrating their love for the one who brought them life in this world.
I drew and painted a card for my mum this year, I hope she likes it as much as I do.
I thought it was an apt day to share with you something from one of my favourite Poets, Christina Rossetti 1830 -1894.
Sonnets Are Full Of Love
Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome
Has many sonnets: so here now shall be
One sonnet more, a love sonnet, from me
To her whose heart is my heart’s quiet home,
To my first Love, my Mother, on whose knee
I learnt love-lore that is not troublesome;
Whose service is my special dignity,
And she my loadstar while I go and come
And so because you love me, and because
I love you, Mother, I have woven a wreath
Of rhymes wherewith to crown your honored name:
In you not fourscore years can dim the flame
Of love, whose blessed glow transcends the laws
Of time and change and mortal life and death.
Thanks for reading.
