From all of us at Portrait of a Bookstore, Happy Mother’s Day to you who’ve been mothers for 60 years, or just a few months, and care takers to children who love you and for whom your hearts swell.

 

 

Mother ‘o Mine by Rudyard Kipling

 

If I were hanged on the highest hill,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
I know whose love would follow me still,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
I know whose tears would come down to me,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

If I were damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
