The Reading Mother

I had a Mother who read me things
That wholesome life to a child’s heart brings –
Stories that stir with an upward touch.
Oh that every Mother were such!

You may have tangible wealth untold
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be.
I had a Mother who read to me.

by Strickland Gillilan, (1869-1954)  an American poet and humorist, much of his work is public domain
