Our Mother

She’s not bad for a human
in fact she’s rather cool.
A diamond in a million,
a really special jewel.

She loves us absolutely,
despite what we may do.
A woman that’s forgiving,
a trooper through and through.

At four o’clock this morning,
she screamed with such delight.
The mouse we brought her from outside,
we think she found alright.

She even joined us in our game
to find the mouse once more.
A generous gesture shown by her
she’d opened the front door.

The food we get is pretty good,
quite often it is hers.
We always show our gratitude
with stacks and stacks of purrs!

Her folded laundry is superb,
luxuriant and soft.
We always clamber to the top
to slumber there aloft.

If the folded laundry pile subsides,
she doesn’t get too mad.
A little grumble here and there,
but nothing really bad!

We know she really loves us,
she tells us all the time.
She not bad for a human,
as our mother she’s sublime!
