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. Herbert Farnham God's Masterpiece is Mother.

the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. Washington Irving
A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly

Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
