Praise Song for My Mother

I was inspired by Grace Nicholl’s poem Praise Song for My Mother so, using the same form, layout and style, I did the same.  I actually used this as part of a Mother’s Day blog post (https://samanthagray9.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/praise-song-for-your-mother/)and incidentally, it formed part of my Mum’s Mother’s Day gift.

Praise Song for My Mother

You are

music to me

clear and soft and singing

 

You are

perfume to me

fresh and sweet and clinging

 

You are

tea to me

warm and strong and comforting

 

You are

the wendy house to me

the joy of scrabble to me

the fish in sauce/baked beans

satisfying satisfying

 

Always drive carefully, you say
