Pretty flowers for Mother,
To give her on Mother’s Day.
May offers many choices,
Found in earth’s splendid bouquet.

Roses are always lovely.
Tulips are beautiful too.
Violets, orchids and lilies,
All kissed by sweet heaven’s dew.

Lilacs long to be chosen;
Showy irises and more.
They all are simply bypassed,
While browsing the flower store.

For Mom’s a simple woman;
Extravagance is not her style.
Choosing one most overlooked,
A flower that makes her smile.

You see, Mother loves her mums,
Each year it’s always the same;
Mom says mums are her first choice,
For both share the same nickname.
