With Sunday approaching for Mother’s Day, a lovely poem by Maggie Smith.
A TRUTH THAT TELLS YOU
I wish for you a small, portable truth you can take
anywhere-no foreign adaptors needed,
no translation required and nothing lost in it.
Once, looking at a map, my daughter said,
A river is a line the world drew for us. I wish for you
a truth that stays true across any line drawn
by the world or its people, a truth that tells you
wherever you arrive, you are welcome.
