The mother's heart, the hero's will;
The softest flower's sweetest feel;
The charm and force that ever sway
The alter fire's flaming play;
The strength that leads, in love obeys;
Far-reaching dreams, and patient ways,
Eternal faith in Self, in all
The sight Divine in great, in small;
All these, and more than I could see
Today may "Mother" grant to thee.

A birthday greeting by
Swami Vivekananda
(January 12, 1863 – July 4, 1902)
