Dipped in Butter

Ellie Jenni mouths of babes

Mothers are

A field of lush

Green grass

Sprinkled with flowers

An artichoke dipped in butter

The evening sky

A glowing peach

As the sun gets shy and hides

A cliff wall

Waiting anxiously

For the giant dandelion to rise from the mountains

To make her glisten

The honeybee

In her yellow garments

Making the world a better place


Snaking down

To earth

To fry the crust

Just like the

Scrumptious cakes

Those mothers always create

For their young

Who will eventually

Be mothers

Mothers are themselves
