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.

From the Author:

I was attending my book signing for A Friend is Forever, my previous collection...my husband was sitting at my side. My advance copy of A Mother's Love was in his hands, and he was reading quietly. When he finally closed the book, I put down the books I was signing and looked over at him. His eyes were welling up and he was biting his lip. My big, strong husband was choked up. He looked at me and smiled. "This is your best collection so far, Kath. These poems about motherhood and children are right on the mark. They are incredible."

The mom of two little boys, I naturally put the collection together for mothers, but my husband's reaction made it clear that it's good reading for everyone. A Mother's Love is a celebration of the comforts and lessons that come from commitment and pure love.

About the Author:

Kathleen Blease is a writer and editor whose previous poetry collections are Love in Verse and A Friend Is Forever. She is a mother and lives with her husband, Roger, and their two small children in the historic district of Easton, Pennsylvania.
