We Have A Beautiful Mother

We Have A Beautiful Mother by Alice Walker

We have a beautiful
Mother
Her hills
Are buffaloes'
Her buffaloes
Hills.

We have a beautiful
Mother
Her oceans
Are wombs
Her wombs
Oceans.

We have a beautiful
Mother
Her teeth
The white stones
At the edge
Of the water
The summer
Grasses
Her plentiful
Hair.

We have a beautiful
Mother
Her green
Lap immense
Her brown embrace
Eternal
Her blue body
Everything we know.



Mom - May you be free, May you be happy, May you be at peace, May you be at rest, May you know we remember you.
