POEMS: “A mother’s prayer”

Oh give me patience when wee hands tug at me with their small demands. And give me gentle and smiling eyes.

SCOTTISH POEMS: “The flowers”

All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener’s garters, Shepherd’s purse,
Bachelor’s buttons, Lady’s smock, And the Lady Hollyhock.

LOVE POEMS: “More strong than time”

Since it was given to me to hear one happy while,
The words wherein your heart spoke all its mysteries,
Since I have seen you weep, and since I have seen you smile,

LOVE POEMS: “True love”

True love is a sacred flame
That burns eternally,
And none can dim its special glow
Or change its destiny.
