I Often Go Walking...

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.

Phyllis Luch, 1969, for song "I Often Go Walking"


Yesterday, my mom got the above art on a Mother's Day card I made for her. Now I can post this for all the other women, living and passed, that I love so dearly.
