Happy Mother's Day

For Mother's Day I am posting my mom's favorite picture of me. It makes her smile because it was taken at a dinner party and every guest took a picture wearing these sunglasses from the '50s.
Mom thought I looked the best!
...and because she loves Shel Silverstein ... this poem is for her!
Happy Mother's Day to all!
***************************************************************************
from the book "Where the Sidewalk Ends" (1974)
I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.
