Poems

A selection of my poetry:

Poem for Mother’s Day

A poem for all mummies who have lost a little one.

Broken Dolly

Poem inspired by a broken doll that I saw on a visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau in 2007.

Forgotten

This poem was inspired by memories of my Dad in his last few months in a nursing home.

Friends Clump

Friends Clump is located on Ashdown Forest. This poem is dedicated to my Uncle John.

Grandma’s Button Box

Stimulated from a writing exercise at University, this reminded me of my Grandma’s house and her skill with a needle.

Highwayman Coat

Inspired by another writing exercise – this one recollecting an item of clothing we wish we had kept.

That Look

Drawing on the theme of baby loss and following research into the Victorian practice of photographing dead babies.
