Mother is mild, merciful, mollifying and mollicoddling. Her home is humble but warm and comfortable as the womb. Sometimes it is moderately merry and mirthful, yet home can become monotonous, hum drum and gloomy, making one morose, miserable, mean, mouldy, melancholy, mournful, moody, mopey, dim, grim and glum. The association between the cycles of women and the moon that measures the month has caused these words in many different languages to be dominated by the M sound.

Idly the listless loafers, slaked with pleasure Slump on the lawns, recline and sleep at leisure. Stealthy oblivion lulls each slothful soul. The swelling floods glide up and oer them roll. lingering by a limpid lagoon
