Mother I love you, nurturer of all;
Sweet nectar of life you provide: pleasant
Spring rain, Summer chariots as presents;
Long Fall nights, winter fires wrapped in shawls,
Mother is our comfort: Mother is all.
From cozied cradle, hands and feet still weak,
To running bodies, bearing strong physique,
And last to our death-beds, on which we sprawl,
Mother’s care shalt never tire feeble:
Mother’s will live on.
Mother’s love shalt never fade hoary:
Mother’s soul beats on.
The keeper of life and all the people,
I Invoke thy Mother muse her glory.
