I was reminded of two lovely things this morning.
The first being a charming publication I was privileged enough to be accepted into for the Fall-Winter edition in 1998-1999. It was titled “The Neovictorian/Cochlea”
The second one being the inspiration behind the poem which was accepted for inclusion at that time. I had heard an old acquaintance speak so lovingly of his Irish born mother that it moved me in many ways.
Having no true and loving mother of my own, I’d always chose to covet his story as a personal comfort for myself throughout the years.
This is the poem…( circa 1998- pre “Ramsy”)
