Tribute to Mother

by John Greenleaf Whittier


A picture memory brings to me;

I look across the years and see

Myself beside my mother’s knee.

I feel her gentle hand restrain

My selfish moods, and know again

A child’s blind sense of wrong and pain.

But wiser now,

a man gray grown,

My childhood’s needs are better known.
