Really nice job.
I'm sure your Mother is smiling down well-pleased and maybe a bit embarrassed for all the attention she is getting with your work.

I like the word-play on Owed and Ode, as both are true.
The refrain at the end of each line is powerful.
Thank you for sharing her with us.

you are so blessed to have a godly mother who brought you to Jesus. Your poem is a great tribute to this mother and shows your true feelings. Well written!

A very well-written prose/poem in honor of a dear mother who gave her heart to God and never rest till she knows her child/children will meet her where she waits in heaven.

This story poem, Owed to Mother, is a great testimony for both God and for the godly woman who kept her children on the straight and narrow. My mom and wife are the very same.

That's a marvellous thing when a matriarch or patriarch gives their life, inevitably that affects a whole heap of lives, and like a family pandemic that's, I have had the honour being the first in remembered generations, is indeed and honour, and whoever prayed and petitioned God, I am so grateful, my children and grandchildren like the Philippian jailer will bless and worship, and boy, to say I'm grateful is an understatement Denis, beautifully written, thank you for sharing, you are a lovely brother, blessings Roy

    Thanks Roy, Mom is proof those who seek Him who is already seeking them will find Him. I'm happy to honor her and thus fulfill scripture. I think all of us will spend time in that new creation thanking the people of God who did things for us we never even knew. God bless you dear Roy, I'm blessed to call you brother.

Clever title wordplay--owed vs ode--as in, you owe her this ode! Effective use of repetition for emphasis. (Did you intend to class this as prose vs poetry?)

    I think it's half and half but honestly, I didn't concern myself too much with it's classification. Glad you picked up on the owed-ode thingee but why wouldn't you? You're smart and on the ball! Thanks for reading and reviewing, much appreciated. God bless, Dennis

reply by Elizabeth Emerald on 20-Nov-2020
    Yours is better poetry than many! There is much non-rhyming free verse "poetry" that would work far better as prose.

reply by the author on 20-Nov-2020
    Thanks! Appreciated! Where are you? It's 1:30 AM on Cape Cod and I am off to bed. Fortunately, I had a nap earlier. I have been reading from my portfolio and reposting some stuff. Truth is, I really LIKE some of my stuff! Is that bad?

    I live in Melrose MA! Same time zone; my hours on site are bass-ackward--9-3 (PM to AM)! I used to be a morning person--with Corona library closures I commandeered my daughter's laptop to work from home. StoryLand has been a Godsend for my sanity!

This story is breath-taking, and the poem is lovely! I enjoy the rhyme after each stanza, and of course, the rhythm is very nice. I loved that you closed each section of the poem with "give her heart to God." This is a touching poem; simply lovely!
