   Our Mother

   By Elva

   She did not care for wordly things Nor laurels hope to claim. She cared not for the world's applause, For vain and fleeting fame. She'd been denied the World's "high lights" The ease you buy with gold. Tho' 'tis what many deem her good, She's missed "good times", I'm told. The World can have what she has missed, To envy, there are none. She had the kisses of a child, At eve----when day is done---She did not care for wanderings When crowds went here and there. She asked of God one thing in life, Twas tis her daily prayer; "Lord, take my life and earthly goods, "One boon I crave, no other "When you complete my 'Book of Life' "Write: I'm a Worthy Mother."
