I'm so fortunate that my mom is still living and healthy. She is the reason I am a teacher and a writer.

What She Found in His Pockets: A Mother's Day tribute

by Profe Steve

She picked up the jeans and gave them a shake, Her eyes opened wide, she started to quake. The things that fell out almost gave her a seizure, Yet she knew that each one was a coveted treasure.

A pen and a toad that he found on the road,

A pen and a toad that he found on the road, A bee and a rock, the hands from a clock.

A pen and a toad that he found on the road, A bee and a rock, the hands from a clock. A clover for luck and a little toy truck,

A pen and a toad that he found on the road, A bee and a rock, the hands from a clock. A clover for luck and a little toy truck, A penny, a dime and a small piece of a lime,

A snake and a ball; it was quite a big haul.

A snake and a ball; it was quite a big haul. Some dirt and some string, a hummingbird wing,

A snake and a ball; it was quite a big haul. Some dirt and some string, a hummingbird wing, The flower of a thistle, a shiny tin whistle.

A snake and a ball; it was quite a big haul. Some dirt and some string, a hummingbird wing, The flower of a thistle, a shiny tin whistle. A tiny toy gun, (oh he must have had fun!)

Each tiny article filled her with awe,

Each tiny article filled her with awe, Like the shriveled up thing that looked like a claw

Each tiny article filled her with awe, Like the shriveled up thing that looked like a claw But the last thing she found made her lose her aplomb:

Each tiny article filled her with awe, Like the shriveled up thing that looked like a claw But the last thing she found made her lose her aplomb: A wrinkled up note that read, “I love you, Mom.”
