Hello everyone and Happy Mother’s Day to all us mums  (despite the clocks going forwards and loosing the lie in today!! – Conspiracy!)

Here’s my video poem for mothers everywhere – so if (due to the clocks changing) you have forgotten to give yourself time to nip out and get a bunch of flowers – send this link to mum instead.

Have a great day!


Brit Mums Poetry & Prose Round Up – April

BritMumslogo

Just leading you to visit the April issue of Brit Mums Poetry Round Up to take a look at all the wonderful poetry that mums somehow, have the time, to squeeze into their days.  I was surprised to see one of mine in there again – my poem for Mother’s Day – We Are The Mums, has made an appearance in the Round Up too!  Cool!

So, grab a cuppa and take a gander into the hearts of mothers and talented ladies.  There’s more to them than apron strings.

 

 


We Are The Mums!

Tall Mums, short Mums
Fat Mums, thin Mums
Sporty Mums, stressy Mums
Glammy Mums, slummy Mums
All shapes and
All guises
Gauging the sizes
Of our bums Mums

Mums can cook and read books
(mostly at the same time)
Mums can sing about silly things
Just to keep in rhyme
Mums can nurse and give a cuddle
Mums can run at speed
To trouble
Mums can wipe up sick and poo
And still remain in love with you

Mums like coffee, tea and bed
Somewhere quiet to hide their heads
Mums drink wine and cry with friends
Its all too much; can’t see the end
Mums are pros still to this day
Its just its all so far away
But Mums are strong and
Mums are brave
Mums can sometimes misbehave

Mums are just in day disguise
Starbucks coffees and Levis
Mums can rock and mums can roll
Beware the Mum’s ambitious goal!
Mums will make sure you’re okay
They wouldn’t sell you
On eBay
We are the Mums
All shapes and sizes
Superwomen in disguises!
