Another piece of the past

Sunday, 12 April 2015 16:34:38

I don't know what made me remember this. However, the past is such a rich seam...   Part of something longer, I think:

When mum was young
She loved the fair
But in midlife
She blamed the rides
Holding her sides
For her back aches and pains
Or was it the shopping
for all of us
walking home, missed the bus...
