A Mother's Love: Classic Poems Celebrating the Maternal Heart
Ballantine Publishing Group, 1999 - Poetry - 127 pages
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.

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.
