I’m going to make this short and sweet. The poem I’m sharing today is dedicated to all the mothers in the world, who should be celebrated everyday. (I’m partial because I’m a mama’s girl through and through.) Maggie Smith’s The Mother* is taken from her poetry collection, Good Bones. I’ve shared a few of her works earlier this year. Maggie Smith is one of my favorite writers.
A big Thank You to Elizabeth Steinglass for hosting the Poetry Friday round-up!
