A Rose for you on Mom’s Day

Nobody knows this little Rose —
It might a pilgrim be
Did I not take it from the ways
And lift it up to thee.
Only a Bee will miss it —
Only a Butterfly,
Hastening from far journey —
On its breast to lie —
Only a Bird will wonder —
Only a Breeze will sigh —
Ah Little Rose — how easy
For such as thee to die!

~ Emily Dickinson



To Mom, who walks in the Garden of all gardens…

and to all of you,

Happy Mother’s Day!

 “Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers, and sisters, aunts and cousins, but only one mother in the whole world.”

— Kate Douglas Wiggin

    Thanks for sharing the rose poem at Literacy Musing Mondays! Moms are definitely special. 🙂

    I love your drawing, “In the Garden With Blue Enchantment.” So beautifully drawn! You’ve captured the innocence of the child, in her sweet face. So pure, so beautiful. Our world needs more of that innocence. So touching. Thank you!

    • Thank you, Eileen… I love the way this one turned out too. The photo I used as my model didn’t have the butterfly, but I noticed bubbles were around the child. Since you couldn’t see where those could be coming from, I thought the butterfly would be a good thing for the child to be gazing at… 🙂 This was one of many baby and toddler faces I recently spotlighted on my other blog. I changed that area where it was posted with a short word about it… but you can see those drawings under “all things childhood” and “baby portraits” there if you missed those… Thank you!

    Pam what a sweet Mother’s Day post. The child is adorable and inquisitive, as children tend to be, and oh my! A blue Morpho! I love those, adn we often see them in March at our St. Louis Butterfly House. So sweet. And I have never read this E. Dickinson poem before. My mother loves her, so when she comes over, I’ll have to let her see this. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts!

    • Thanks, Lynn… I’ve only seen those blue butterflies at our Butterfly Garden place too. They are my favorites. So glowing! I never read this poem before either, but I usually like Dickinson. Something about this one spoke to me, but now when I read it I’m not sure why I chose it for the Mom’s Day post except that maybe it speaks of valuing the treasures we have (like moms) while we have them with us?
