For mothers

For Elizabeth…and all of us

Mothers

Link to our past

Give birth to us

And our future

Share their wisdom

And those of their line

As well as precious memories.

All the gestures

All the sayings

All the laughter

All the love

Made manifest

In countless ways

Acxross the years.

‘Thank you’

Hardly seems enough

But it’s a good start

Along with accepting the baton

To create nurturing, inclusive communities

In our turn
