To My Mother
by Christina Rossetti
To-day’s your natal day;
Sweet flowers I bring:
Mother, accept, I pray
And may you happy live,
And long us bless;
Receiving as you give
Happy birthday, Mom! Thank you for being you — and for encouraging me to be me.
For the rest of my readers: Tomorrow, I’ll have a post about Laura Eno‘s new book, Jewel of Shaylar, which launches today. Later this week, I may have some more spring pictures, and I’ll be back to flash on Friday.
Laura is one of three book launch posts I’ll have this month; check back on May 21 for Karina Fabian’s latest, and on the 31st to read about Sarah-Jane Lehoux’s Sevy trilogy.
Be sure to check back in early June, too, when I’ll talk about how I did on my short stories for this month.
