The mother: Rose Kennedy

God gave her a boon.
She deserved it significantly.
In her Rose-petals,
Through her fragrance,
She reveals it: Love,
The prize of Tomorrow.

No pound, no dollar,
Can conquer her love's priceless treasure:
The bond of oneness divine.
Love knows no fear.
Death dare not clasp
Its all-fulfilling strength,
Its immortality.

She offered her Jack
To be brother and son
Of all mankind.
From a humane heart sprang
The heart adored
By the four corners
Of the world.
