Belated Mother's Day

(Photograph copyright 2010 by Dan Routh)

My son Devin is in school at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, and he wasn't able to get home for Mother's Day. He's a poet, so he was able to send a few belated verses to his Mom in the form of a limerick.

"So I have this very swell mama
who kept me from childhood trauma
and though she can nag
like a withered old hag
without her I'd drown in life's drama."

(Poetry copyright 2010 by Devin Routh, used with permission)

He made his Mom laugh.
