Monna Marilyn Conant Frakes
Pick of the Crop
My mother, she worries! With that worry comes great love.
My mother, she smiles! The thoughts of her travels, like wings of a dove.
My mother, she laughs! The jokes she loves to hear and tell.
My mother, she rumages! The things she buys and then herself will sell.
My mother, she reads! The books that take her someplace.
My mother, she cooks! That down home food with great taste.
My mother, she cares! Great feelings and emotions flow without stop.
My mother, she lives! Thank God, He gave me the Pick Of The Crop!
Dedicated to my mother:
Monna Marilyn (Conant)Frakes
