TRIBUTE TO MOM

(May 13, 2012)   Thanks to Sandra, at the last poetry meeting I attended, I finally learned the name of this type of poem. Definition of an acrostic poem: a series of lines or verses in which the first, last, or other particular letters were taken in order to spell out a word, phrase, etc.* Here’s the poem, since it is such an important day.

MY DEAR LOVING MOTHER

(In Memory of Adele Ruth Carpenter Davis)

MINE!

Year after year, oh so dear

Dad’s true love

Everybody’s friend

ADELE

RUTH

Lipstick, bright red

Overworked waitress, Chicago, famous autographs!

Very big heart!

I love yous every day

Never forgotten

Giggles, a beautiful laugh

Model

Once upon a time

Troubled

Hairspray galore, ADORN

Easy on her kids.  Thanks!

R.I.P.

(Happy Mother’s Day Mom! Eternal  Love, Your Daughter, Gail Davis Galvan, 2012)
