Saturday Centus - 4 May 2013

"(24/7) once you sign on to be a mother that's the only shift they offer." - Jodi Picoult

Welcome to Saturday Centus, where Jenny, from "Off my tangent" has given us, 
"Sleep my child and peace attend thee...." as our prompt with any style writing and any photos.

A mother's tender touch.

Clutter Thee Mind Not
With Worry

Frost in a snowbank
My baby leaves a message
in the snow.

Feed me.
Love me.
Leave me.
Save me from the dog!

Frost on the dog's face
Don't let him catch me
okay mommy dear?

Stupid things we do
I'm hoping you forget
For all our sakes.

Brother leads us
to do these things.

For fun and not foe
Please mother dear

We'll follow you 
anywhere just to hear

one more time-

Sleep my child 

and peace attend thee

A mother's love is forever.

Goats are generally so cute and cuddly until you spend a fair amount of time with them.

What a really moving post, with so many rich allusions. I shall think of it All Through the Night.

Lovely the little goat but I wouldn't like to see a goat on my car.

How does this manage to be both so cute and so touching at the same time?
