Mother Days Poems

Mother Days Poems as a title may seem flawed but searchers are flawed so I'm going with the flaw.

I bring you a poem in two languages, English UK and English USA and also, in rhyme, I take the time, to explain what determines the dates of Mother Days

Many Countries adopt Mothers Day, per USA
On the second Sunday, in the month of May
But not so, in Ireland and the UK

Mothering Sunday there, is always spent
On the fourth Sunday after the start of Lent
So why, you ask, does Lent move around?
Because Easter need good light on the ground
It's to do with a full moon in the sky
Good light for walking is the reason why
Pilgrims to the holy lands walked at night

They relied heavily on good moon light
So the holy day (Easter Sunday) follows the moon
It's always in the Spring, but can be late or soon

This year, 2011, Mothering Sunday is very late
Sunday April 3rd is precisely the date
So I bring you now a poem for Mother's Day
Is it original? I hear you say. Or nick it, as is oft your way?
I adapted it, well, that's my excuse
But I've made it perfect for Mick and Brit use

So here goes, with the adapted one of the Mother Days Poems

For all the nappies that you've changed.
For all the play dates you've arranged.

For all the trips back and forth to school
For mopping up gallons of vomit and drool.

For putting up with all that swill
You should have all of March..and a bit of April.

One day is just not enough... and yet
I'm sorry, pet, but that's all you get

So spend your special Sunday, April Three
Happily, and very work-free

For all the diapers
that you changed.
For all the play dates
you arranged.

For all the trips
back and forth to school
for cleaning all the spit up
and the drool.

Why is there only
one Mother's Day.
You could have at least gotten
the ENTIRE month of May.


So there you have it, Mother Days Poems
For Brits, Yanks and Poms
I hope you enjoy
Should you need it, here's moy
