Well.....we all have or had Mothers.....I guess.....

It is Mothers Day and being a reader of poetry of not just mainstream but unusual and "odd" origins I thought I'd share this one with you.....

When your mother has gown older. And you have grown older,
When what was formerly easy and effortless now becomes a burden,
When her dear loyal eyes do not look out into life as before,
When her legs have grown tired and do not want to carry her anymore --
Then give her your arm for support, Accompany her with gladness and joy,

The hour will come when, weeping you will accompany her on her last journey!
And if she asks you, answer her.
And if she asks again, speak also.
And if she asks another time. speak to her not stormily, but in gentle peace!
And if she cannot understand you well,
Explain everything joyfully;
The hour will come, the bitter hour when her mouth will ask no more.
Adolf Hitler:
Yeah kinda shocked me too! makes one think doesn't it.....?

  1. 20% nature 80% nurture - Hitler's mother was responsible for the genetic input and the upbringing!
    He wrote beautifully though.
