A Mother's Job
Poem By Arthur Richards
Apple pie baker. Pumpkin face maker,
Laundress, seamstress, cook.
Dishwasher, sweeper, household maid,
A doctor who cures
with a single Band-Aid.
Designer of toys. Teacher of Arts.
Daily mender of broken hearts.
To fill every need of sister or brother,
Is simply her job of being a Mother.
