Here is a beautiful poem by Carol Matthews entitled “Mothers Day”
A Mother loves right from the start.
She holds her baby close to her heart.
The bond that grows will never falter.
Her love is so strong it will never alter.
A Mother gives never ending Love.
She never feels that she has given enough.
For you she will always do her best.
Constantly working, there’s no time to rest.
A Mother is there when things go wrong.
A hug and a kiss to help us along.
Always there when we need her near.
Gently wipes our eyes when we shed a tear.
So on this day shower your Mother with Love.
Gifts and presents are nice but that is not enough.
Give your Mother a day to have some peace of mind.
Be gentle, be good, be helpful, be kind.
Happy Mothers Day.

-A Haiku is another ancient form of Japanese poetry. It consists of seven syllables and is typically used when writing a poem about nature.
-One open form of poetry is known as free verse. It is written to follow natural speech patterns and rhythms. Unlike many other forms of poetry, it does not contain specific patterns or rhymes.
-A sonnet consists of 14 lines of poetry that express a thought or an idea. Each of the 14 lines are 10 syllables in length. Sonnets usually contain a formal rhyme. The 14 lines of a sonnet can be broken down into four sections known as quatrains.
-You could also write an ABC poem. This type of poem consists of four lines that begin with letters that are in alphabetical order. However, the fifth line and beyond can begin with any letter. For example you could write,
Finest of days are always spent with my mother
Grateful am I that she was chosen to be my mom
Happy are we when we are together
I know she loves me because of her actions and words
Kind and gentle, loving and loyal is my mom
Never has a better mother existed
She may just be one mom to the world, but to me she means the world
-If you enjoy the challenge of writing a poem that rhymes, consider trying to write a limerick! This type of poem has a distinct form of rhyming. The rhyming form is AABBA. A limerick poem consists of several lines that are longer than others. The first, second, and fifth lines should rhyme and should be slightly longer than the third and forth lines.
