Some poems

Here I have selected six poems that express in beautiful verse what it means to be a mother.

If you feel like Annette von Droste-Hülshoff describes it in the fifth poem here, namely that you lack the words to describe what you feel for the most, then these poems will definitely help you.

If you're looking for beautiful or upscale words of gratitude, you've come to the right place.

Maybe you can come up with an art print for one of the poems? It is best to use a larger format than DIN A4.

1. Mother now has her worries ...

"Father leaves early in the morning,
on to work as usual.
Mother now has her worries
therefore follow her word!

She has to cook, wash, mend,
sewing, cleaning, knitting for you:
her tireless hands
diligently create without end. "


2. To the mother

“… But now to you, only mother.
I am with you so often with my thoughts.
I am learning to understand you more and more.
I suspect you.
When my thoughts are with you
then it is as if my little one
restless man clinging to something solid,
Unshakable holds on.
But the best thing is that these celebrations
Unshakable has such a big heart.
Thank you, dear mother,
that you kept yourself with us.
Let yourself be hugged very calmly and for a long time. "

Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907), German painter

3. ***

"Thank you, mother, for life,
for the love that belongs to us
thank you, mother, for giving,
for your being on this earth ’.
Could we hold you forever
always in this world
you would make it so beautiful
that no shadow falls on them.
Let us also thank the Lord God
simply that there are mothers
no one will waver in life
when a mother loves him. "


4. ***

“To be a mother is to believe
in children's happiness.
To be a mother means to hope
even in the event of a mishap.
To be a mother means to love
faithful in joys and sorrows.
To be a mother means to work
happy and helpful. "


5. To my mother

“I would have loved to have made a beautiful song
of your love, of your faithful way;
the gift that always watches for others,
I would have loved to wake you up at your price.

But like me, more and more,
and whatever I liked to put the rhymes,
the tides of the heart surged over it,
The gentle waves of the song destroyed me.

So accept the simple, simple gift
borne by simply unadorned words,
and take my whole soul in it:
Where you feel the most
you don't know much to say.

Now dear May is in the country
he moved in with flowers,
and these flowers that I found
I'll bring you, mothers!
The flower needs the sunshine
otherwise it will soon perish ’,
and I, I need my mother:
God keep you safe!

Just as the little flower is grateful
for every ray of sunshine,
so thanks you for the love your child:
God reward you a thousand times! "

Annette von Droste-Hülshoff (1797-1848), German poet

6. mother

"If you still have a mother -
then take hold of this happiness with both hands.
Give her all your love that you can -
happiness will never end then.

give you warmth like sunshine. "

Karin Obendorfer (born 1945), poet
