Heading off to primary school then secondary or grammar, at break time
in the playground laughing, having fun,
a mother and grandma is first a little girl, child, teenager, then young
adult, long before becoming a mum.
A lifetime of marriage and children imparts experience and knowledge,
leading to a wealth of respected wisdom,
sharing treasured stories of family history, humorous anecdotes and
memories about great grandad and mum.
The distinctive sound of the milkman’s horse and cart filled with silver
milk churns echoes along the street early each morn,
the baker’s shop window with domed loaves, tempting cakes, the smell
of warm yeasty bread emanating soon after dawn.
A woven wicker basket carries a bar of Fry’s chocolate from the
greengrocer alongside colourful jars and cans,
the white aproned butcher serves from behind a long glass counter,
waiting patiently outside a smart navy delivery van.
Wearing a blue polka dot sweetheart dress and smart pillbox hat
with feathers to a Saturday night dance,
the wooden wireless with a lit numerical dial and decorative speaker
plays the same songs, purely by chance.
Bing Crosby’s smooth dulcet tones play alongside the swinging upbeat
songs of Glenn Miller’s big band sound,
the quality far superior to the wind up gramophone with it’s crackling
records, the large speaker horn petal shaped and round.
Cleaning out the ash and lighting the kitchen’s large black range ready
for cooking, is the first job of the day,
arriving home from school and work, eating the meal together as a family,
washing up, then the children going out to play.
On Monday’s heating the copper, using a Dolly tub, then winding the iron
mangle gets the washing dry and clean,
high above, plugged in the ceiling’s single light socket, the wire of the electric
iron with it’s silver metallic gleam.
As a small child you taught me to tie my laces, picked me up and gave
me a gentle hug when I fell down,
answered hundreds of questions with patient answers and sunshine in
your smile, very rarely a slight frown.
The special maternal all encompassing love built on a lifetime of giving
and caring, which we all shared,
we are honoured to have had such a wonderful much loved
mum and grandma for whom we all deeply cared.
