for springtime is lovetime and viva sweet love -e.e.cummings


My mother is a mountain
She never bends or moves
She never breaks or cools
And underneath that thick stony skin there is heat.

My mother is a birch
She is thin and pale
She is beautiful and alive
And any imperfections are as natural as the trees.

My mother is a human
She loves and laughs
She is weak and flawed
And her birch hands, mountain strength make me.

I love the way you describe your mother. This poem reminds me of the saying "My mom is my rock." It is a very inspirational piece. My favorite stanza, however, is the last one in which you describe the way your mom affects you. Amazing job!
