Mum’s missing poem found
I am delighted, I have found my mum’s missing poem that was published sometime between the summer and autumn of 1979 in Contact, The Magazine of the Pre-school Playgroups Association . As anticipated it was placed somewhere too safe to readily find, filed with my research on motherhood and arts practice. Before it disappears again, I will publish it again here, 35 years since it was written. At the time she wrote this she had four children (aged 4, 8, 10 and 12) and was nursing, working the night shift at the local cottage hospital.
