  • To my mother (Edmondo De Amicis)

Time does not always erase beauty

Or tears and troubles touch her;

My mother is sixty,

And the more I look at it, the more beautiful it seems to me.

It doesn't have a saying, a smile, a look, an act

That you don't gently touch my heart;

Ah if I were a painter

I would paint his portrait all my life.

I would like to portray her when she bows her face

For me to kiss her white braid,

Or when you get sick and tired

He hides his pain under a smile.

But if it were my prayers in heaven accepted

I wouldn't ask for the great painter from Urbino The divine brush

To crown his beautiful face with glory;

I wish I could change life with life,

Give her all the vigor of my years,

See me old, and she rejuvenated from my sacrifice.

  • La mamma (Ada Negri)

Mom is no longer young

and already has a lot of gray hair:

but his voice is ringing

of a little girl and everything in her is clear

and energetic: the step, the movement,

the look, the word

  • Thank you Mom (Judith Bond)

Thanks Mom

because you gave me

the tenderness of your caresses,

good night kiss,

your thoughtful smile,

your sweet hand that gives me security.

You secretly dried my tears,

you encouraged my steps,

you corrected my mistakes,

you protected my path,

you educated my spirit,

with wisdom and love

you introduced me to life.

And while you watched carefully over me

you found the time

for the thousand housework.

You never thought about asking for thanks.

Thanks Mom.

  • The mother (Victor Hugo)

The mother is an angel

who looks at us who teaches us to love!

She warms our fingers,

our head between his knees,

our soul in his heart:

she gives us her milk when we are little,

his bread when we are grown up

and his life always.

Primary School Mother's Day Poems

At school, primary school children can read slightly more challenging poems and discover deeper emotions and feelings. Here are some poems dedicated to the mother to propose to primary school children

  • The Mother (Edmondo De Amicis)

Even poor as a bird

that, outside the nest, possesses nothing,

always the mother has a heart to give so that her son does not have to suffer.

Mother is always the fragrant flower

that fills everything around with itself,

even if it stays away from you

with his thought he lives next to you.

His heart shines like a star,

lives his love as a source:

to its water you regain strength,

in its light you lit up your brow.

You hide, but she sees you;

you do not speak to her, but she understands you;

at your threshold he always sits;

you give it pain and it makes you happy.

Like a tree that drops in the sun

immediately enchanted,

if you say sweet words to her

even his tears become light.

  • Supplication to My Mother (Pier Paolo Pasolini)

It is difficult to say in son's words

what in my heart I resemble very little.

You are the only one in the world who knows about my heart

what has always been, before any other love.

This is why I must tell you what it is horrendous to know:

it is within your grace that my anguish is born.

You are irreplaceable. For this she is damned

to loneliness the life you gave me.

I do not want to be alone. I am endlessly hungry

of love, of the love of soulless bodies.

Because the soul is in you, it's you, but you

you are my mother and your love is my bondage:

I spent my childhood as a slave to this sense

high, irremediable, of an immense commitment.

It was the only way to feel life,

the only color, the only shape: now it's over.

We survive: and it is confusion

of a life reborn out of reason.

I beg you, ah, I beg you: don't want to die.

I am here, alone, with you, in a future April ...

  • To All Women (Alda Merini)

Fragile, opulent woman, matrix of heaven

you are a speck of guilt

even in the eyes of God

despite your holy wars

for emancipation.

They split your beauty

and remains a skeleton of love

but who still cries out for revenge

and only you can

still crying,

then you turn around and see your children again,

then you turn around and you still can't say

and be silent in amazement

and then you become as big as the earth

our; we are all far away. But you have amazing

I am the dew, the day,

will have brought down the wall of shadow

to lead me, Mother, to the Lord,

as once you will give me your hand.

on her knees, determined,

You will be a statue before the eternal,

when you were still alive.

You will raise your old arms trembling,

as when you expired

saying: My God, here I am.

And only when he has forgiven me,

you will want to look at me.

You will remember that you have waited so long for me,

and you will have a quick sigh in your eyes.

Poems for Neruda's mother

  • Son

Do you know where you come from?

… Near the water in winter

she and I raised a fiery red

consuming our lips

kissing our soul,

throwing everything into the fire,

burning our lives.

So you came into the world.

But her to see me

and to see you someday

crossed the seas

and me to hug

its thin side

all the earth traveled,

with wars and mountains,

with arenas and thorns.

So you came into the world.

You come from so many places,

from water and land,

from fire and snow,

from so far you walk

towards the two of us,

from the love that has chained us,

that we want to know

how are you, what do you tell us?

because you know more

of the world that we gave you.

Like a great storm

we shook

the tree of Life

up to the most occult

root fibers

and now you appear

singing in the foliage,

on the highest branch

that we reached with you.

  • mother

La Mamadre, here she comes

with wooden clogs. Yesterday night

the pole wind blew, they broke through

the roofs collapsed

the walls and the bridges,

the whole night he growled with his pumas,

and now, in the morning

of the cold sun, it comes

my mother, madam

Trinidad Marverde,

sweet as timid freshness

of the sun of the stormy lands,


minute that goes out

and turns on again

for all to distinguish the path.

Oh, sweet mother

- I never could

say stepmother -


my mouth trembles to define you,

why just

I was able to understand

I saw the goodness clothed in miserable dark rags,

the most useful holiness:

that of water and flour,

and this you were: life made you bread

and there we consumed you

in the long desolate winters

with the pouring rain

inside the house

and your ubiquitous humility


the harsh

corn of misery

as if it were going


a river of diamonds.

Ouch, mom, how could I

live without remembering you

at my every moment?

It is not possible. I bring

your Marverde in my blood,


of those

sweet hands

which they cut out of a sack of flour

the breeches of my childhood,

she who cooked, ironed, washed,

sowed, calmed the fever,

and, when he had done everything

and now I could

stand firmly on my legs,

he withdrew, courteous, shy,

in the small coffin

where for the first time she was idle

under the hard rain of Temuco.

Poems for Mother's Day by

With his unmistakable ironic style, but also profound and moving, the great wrote several verses and words dedicated to the mother.

  • For mom

Nursery rhyme of words: whoever wants to come forward.

My head is full of words, as in 'the moon' and 'the whale'.

But the most beautiful in my heart, I hear them beating: 'mom', 'love'.

  • The working mom

I have a little idea that you would like it so much if your mother would always stay at home to do the maid for you and your little brothers, to polish your shoes, to wash your handkerchiefs, and many others, etc., etc.

I don't know what job your mom does, but it will certainly be a useful job: useful to you for the money she can earn and useful to the whole society. And you should admire her even more, not only because she is your mom, but because she is a working woman: an important and good woman.

You can polish the shoes yourself, you can give the handkerchiefs to the washerwoman, then you can sit at the window waiting for your mother to come back to ask her: "What did you do today? Tell us about your job and teach us how to become as good as you"
