My poem follows here:
Mother May I?
Mother may I play with blocks?
Oops, I 've taken off my socks!
Mother may I have a candy,
I'll brush my teeth just fine and dandy?
Mother must I go to school?
Yes, I will learn the golden rule.
Mother may I travel far?
I really want to be a star!
Mother may I kiss this boy?
He's my life, he is my joy!
Mother will you pray with me,
When nightmares will not let me be?
Mother will you close my eyes,
When all is quiet, both pain and cries?
Mother, tell me, will I always be loved,
By you and the Lord in Heaven, above?
Word count according to WordCalc: 107 including all of the 'Mother-may-Is'.
