Over my heart, in the days that are flown,
No love like my mother-love ever has shown,
No other worship abides and endures--
Faithful, unselfish, and patient like yours.
--Elizabeth Akers Allen

No other love is so tender and true as the love of a mother for her child. It has inspired the world's most sublime art, music, and poetry, and it illuminates every page of this beautiful book. From the wealth of verse celebrating maternal love, Kathleen Blease has selected nearly a hundred heartwarming poems, fashioning a garland of praise for the selfless devotion that is the soul of a child's universe.

Always giving, mothers seldom ask for anything in return. Now here's a moving celebration of love that will touch and warm any mother's heart.
