A Poem for Mom
Our featured young writer for this week is 10-year-old Cleo Karrell Llige who studies at St. Scholastica’s College Manila. Her poems and journals were published in her school’s publication, Little Bluestockings, when she was just 8 years old. She shares that she dreams to become a journalist someday and be recognized as a New York Times best-selling author. She believes these are what dreams are made of.
She shares her poem about a dear mother just in time for Mother’s Day.
A Deary Mother
by Cleo Karrel Llige
A deary mother always cares
and she is always fair
she cares for us
she dries our tears
and she never fears
a mother yes she is
loving and caring a mother yes she is
she never shoves people
but she acts like you’re a pupil
she’s not a father or sibling
she’s a mother for goodness sake!
