Hail To Aunts, Who Serve As Audience

Hail to aunts, who serve as audience,
Although at times it may be from afar!
Pleased to tender sympathy and sense;
Pleased to leave the inner door ajar.
Yet near or distant, the need remains the same:
Mothers could use extra tongues and ears,
Offering the care without the claim,
The friendship with the expertise of years.
However much an aunt is heard or seen,
Even though proximity is best,
Relationships depend on what they mean --
'Tis love that puts all reticence to rest.
So let us sing to aunts, that they may be
Delighted with their role, deservedly --
A speaking part in which the words they say
Yield fruit that nourishes an unseen day.

Happiness Can Also Be A Haunting
Happiness can also be a haunting,A text one can recite but cannot read.Peace need not erase the need for need,Pressed to a perfection one finds daunting.Yet often one can win with little warning,Mothering the plant without the seed,Of help in breeding though of different breed,Taking pleasure in another's dawning.How one feels depends on how one chooses,Embracing always less that what one wills,Redeeming even tragedy with passion'Mid the sinking tapestries of night.So may you find the courage that refusesDominion to the clarity that kills,Awakening the mother that might fashionYearning strong enough to see the light.

Grandmothers Are Mothers Who Are Grand Grandmothers Are Mothers Who Are Grand

Grandmothers Are Mothers Who Are Grand
Grandmothers are mothers who are grand,Restoring the sense that our most precious thingsAre those that do not change much over time.No love of childhood is more sublime,Demanding little, giving on demand,More inclined than most to grant the wings On which we fly off to enchanted lands.Though grandmothers must serve as second mothers,Helping out with young and restless hearts,Each has all the patience wisdom brings,Remembering our passions more than others,Soothing us with old and well-honed arts.
