READERS’ POETRY: From the Bury Free Press of Friday, March 4

This week’s poem, called Mother’s Day, is by Colin Clements.

It’s Spring time and the sun is warming up the soil

The flowers are growing all the while

Will they be ready for Mother’s Day? who can say

Our sons and daughters will get them from the florist shops

To give them to their mothers on the special day, they haven’t forgot

To thank her for all she has done

After all you only have one mum.

We gave them to our mothers years ago

We picked the flowers from the woods and hedgerows

There were violets, primrose bluebells and wild roses

We bunched them up to look like posies

It gave the house a wonderful smell.

You can’t pick wild flowers now, it’s against the law

And now my children are here to give flowers, the ones she adores,

They all visit us at the weekend

To see their Mother who they depend.
