Jack Hirschman's "Mother"

It's Mother's Day, so I am posting Jack's poem "Mother." You may also hear him read it in the clip I am posting, which is an amazing experience. Jack's wife, Agneta, believes that this is the best poem he has ever written. I am pretty sure it's up there in his poetical pantheon.
