“Mother’s Day Things” by Josephina Green

Josephina Green (age 6)


Heart shapes, chocolate capes—
Oh there are so many things you can give
To your mother on Mother’s Day

You can give her some flowers
You can give her some wool
Give her some sunflower seeds

You can give her a card
Why even a hug is special
Just make it special

from 2018 Rattle Young Poets Anthology
