A gentle smile as she soothed childish fears
Welsh cakes on the rayburn ,home for our tea
Helping feed calves with our fingers in milk
Childhood memories of love and my mum

Her quiet voice calming Dads irate mood
whenever a crisis caused shouts of fear.
Homemade wine ,elderflower and dandelion
Childhood memories of love and my mum

Home made clothes and hand-me -downs
handknitted jumpers in icelandic wool
days spent exploring,treasure hunts and dens
Childhood memories of love and my mum

Day out visits to aunties and granny
Cousins arriving to play on the farm
Evenings spent helping to milk all the cows
Chilhood memories of love and my mum

A wry sense of humour ,quick repartee
always there. ready to listen in need
daisy chains,cartwheels ,and haymaking fields
Childhood memories of love and my mum.
