A Mother's Day poem

The following poem was submitted by former Vermont resident J.P. Ashton of Little Falls, N.J. The excerpt serves as a reminder to everyone to do something special for mom this Mother's Day-

"A Mother's Lament"

Don't wait to love me 'til my ultimate demise

Don't come to my resting place laden with flowers

Don't spend tedious hours grooming a gravesite

Rather come to me now and share your love and understanding...

Don't wait 'til I gently slip into senility

Don't come then and expect me to saver your presence

Don't spend needless time reflecting on what could have been

Rather come to me now and share your love and understanding...

Don;t let peer pressure or spouse deter your caring

I want you today, as you are, with whatever understanding you have at your command

Stand proud, apart from others, and be glad you loved and shared now

Then, I'll depart from this world, as a Mother, who has been totally fulfilled.
