Gateway to the Classics: The Way of the Green Pastures by E. Hershey Sneath
The Way of the Green Pastures by  E. Hershey Sneath

Only One Mother

HUNDREDS of stars in the pretty sky;

Hundreds of shells on the shore together;

Hundreds of birds that go singing by;

Hundreds of bees in the sunny weather;

Hundreds of dew drops to greet the dawn;

Hundreds of lambs in the purple clover;

Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn;

But only one mother the wide world over.


Honor thy father and thy mother.

—Exodus xx. 12.
