To Mother

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.
