They wove violets and daisies on my hair
saying, “You are quite beautiful and fair”
what sweet words for the one who cleans their mess
servant and queen, the life of a mother.
I am writing for Bjorn’s DVERSE’ promot – Rub’ai and Rubayiat. It’s been awhile since I participated in the Pub prompts. School has begun for us and now, I am teaching three children. In between, I still can tomatoes. The harvest has been quite plentiful this season that, so far, I have about 38 quarts of canned tomatoes, excluding the canned sauce and salsa I have made. I have been having a lot of productive time but it has been a little tiring, too.
Anyway, before this dissolves into a whine session, let me just wish you a Happy Friday and I’ll see your posts one way or the other. 🙂

This was tight and the rhyme scheme worked well – and yes they can be servant and queen.
a lovely poem. Yes, mom’s can be both queen’s and servants…fortunately, children CAN be sweet!
How sweet of your boys ~ The chores of the mother is never ending but I do like that you are caning your tomatoes ~
yes……….mothers are and they do both jobs with heart….beautifully done…
mhm… that’s my mom… she’s cleaned up a lot of my messes; she still does occasionally… smiles.
beautiful words from a mother….how lovely, Imelda! and how sweet are your boys! the flowers are as beautiful! 🙂
Ah.. so nice for children to make their mother happy.. (and how easy it is really)… so glad to see you around 🙂
smiles… a mother def. needs a servant’s heart… and the kindness and dignity of a queen…
Can you make `whine` with tomatoes
Oooh, you have been busy, Imelda–I have great admiration for you.
servant and queen…
where would we be without our mothers….
You’re not whining… you’re telling it like it is… and that’s okay… Home schooling I can’t even imagine… Diane
That is sweet! My boys used to bring me flowers (or weeds) when they were little 🙂
