Classic Mother's Day Poetry

Our mothers, step-mothers, grandmothers, wives and lovers mean a great deal to us all. So much so, that it's difficult to express in words the extent of our gratitude for the love and sacrifice that they have provided over the years. Fortunately, some of the greatest poets of all time have provided their musings on the challenges and joys of motherhood, and their expressive words could guide your message of appreciation this year.

Below is a sample of some of the most beautiful written depictions of motherhood, encompassing the trials, tribulations and rewards associated with the relationship. Feel free to use parts of these works to show your special mother figure love this Mothering Sunday.
