Victorian Lace on Motherís Day

Letís take a journey back in time
To centuries long ago
When everything was beautiful
And gentle streams did flow.

Where happy children graced the halls
In mansions on a hill
Where charm and grace did set the pace
In memories, lingering still.

A time when ladies met for tea
At tables set for two
Southern Belles with things to tell
In misty morning hue.

Corsets here and bustles there
Such lovely flowing dresses
A touch of eloquence was found
Beneath those lovely tresses.

All dressed up in fringe and lace
With gowns of flowing white
They held their children close to them
And tucked them in at night.

With locks of hair pulled up in buns
And topped with pretty bonnet
The legend that was left behind
Sounds nearly like a sonnet.

The century now has turned the tide
They since have gone away
And other mothers fill the earth
To brighten Motherís Day.

Through the passing years in time
One thing will stay the same
The precious name of mother
Her love will always remain.

For all the ladies gone before
I pray for heavenís grace
To all the mothers here today
I wish you frills and lace.

Scripture: From Proverbs 31

She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
and in her tongue is the law of
kindness. Her children arise up, and
call her blessed.

I would like to dedicate this beautiful
poem that Marilyn has written to all of
my Wonderful Friends, who are Mothers,
and Grandmothers! God Bless You!
~Happy Mothers Day~
