sunflowers at dusk

 I often go walking in meadows of clover,
And I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over;
Dear mother, all flowers remind me of you.
O mother, I give you my love with each flower
To give forth sweet fragrance a whole lifetime through;
For if I love blossoms and meadows and walking,
I learn how to love them, dear mother, from you.
Happy Birthday Mom.
She won't see this for a few days since she's off watching the animal migration in Kenya.


  1. This is so sweet Jenna, I really needed this morning. Your Mom will be happy to receive this wonderful flower even though there are many miles between you both.

  2. Thanks Jenna for the lovely flowers and thought. Love you so much. Mom
