‘My Mother’ is a gentle nostalgic poem written by ‘Guru’ Rabindranath Tagore. He is one of the greatest poets of modern India. His mother passed away when he was young. In this poem, he expresses his inability to recall the face or the features of his mother. When he looks at his playthings, he seems to be able to hear a tune. Perhaps his mother often sang the same song when she moved his cradie gently.

In autumn, the shiuli tree blossoms into fragrant tiny flowers. His mother would string the flowers for the morning service in the temple. When he smells the scent of shiuli flowers, he recalls his mother. When he sees from his bedroom window into the blue of the distant sky, he feels the stillness of his mother’s gaze. This poem eloquently reveals the emotional bonding between the poet and his mother. She has a great impact on the poet.


My mother, I have learned the importance of kindness, compassion, and hard work. I have also learned the importance of putting family first and never giving up on my dreams. My mother is my role model and I am so proud of the woman she is.
