but I only know the last line. Please Help me ASAP. The last line is:
: : : Richer am I by far because My Mother read to me.

:
: THE READING MOTHER
: In last February's edition, we mentioned that Strickland Gillilan, author of The World's Shortest Poem, (FLEAS: Adam/Had 'em) had also composed a piece called The Reading Mother. We quoted these eight lines, which are repeated thousands of times throughout the English-speaking world every Mothers' Day:
: I had a Mother who read me things
: That wholesome life to a child's heart brings
: Stories that stir with an upward touch.
: Oh that every Mother were such!
: You may have tangible wealth untold
: Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
: Richer than I you can never be.
: I had a Mother who read to me.
: One of our U.S. readers, Rosie Kolodziejczyk, of Kingsland, Georgia, has e-mailed us:
: There is more to the poem than what you printed. A copy was given to me as a Mother's Day gift by my own mother, because I have always read to my children. It is one of my most prized possessions.
: It was a newspaper clipping. Probably out of the Dear Abby column or something of that nature. I keep it in a small frame on the sill of my kitchen window. It helps me keep things in perspective and resist the urge to just let the kids watch t.v. before bed :-).
: Here's the complete poem:
: THE READING MOTHER
: Strickland Gillilan
: I HAD A MOTHER who read to me
: Sagas of pirates who scoured the sea,
: Cutles clenched in their yellow teeth,
: "Blackbirds" stowed in the hold beneath
: I had a Mother who read me lays
: Of ancient and gallant and golden days;
: Stories of Marmion and Ivanhoe,
: Which every boy has a right to know.
: I had a Mother who read me tales
: Of Celert the hound of the hills of Wales,
: True to his trust till his tragic death,
: Faithfulness blent with his final breath.
: I had a Mother who read me the things
: That wholesome life to the boy heart brings-
: Stories that stir with an upward touch,
: Oh, that each mother of boys were such.
: You may have tangible wealth untold;
: Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
: Richer than I you can never be --
: I had a Mother who read to me.
