7 Lines of Poetry for Mother's Day

April is National Poetry Month and with Mother’s Day around the corner on May 10, it seems like the perfect time to share some lines of poetry that focus on mothers.

Poetry has the ability to condense deep emotions into inspirational and relatable words. You don’t always need an epic poem to express your gratitude — even something as simple as a 'thank you' can be just as meaningful. 

Hopefully these words will allow you to reflect on the relationship you have with your own mother.
