Poem introduction

Mum

Mum [Polly Peters]

She's a:

Sadness Stealer
Cut-knee healer
Hug-me-tighter
Wrongness righter
Gold star carer
Chocolate sharer (well, sometimes!)

Hamster feeder
Bedtime reader
Great game player
Night fear slayer
Treat dispenser
Naughty sensor (how come she always knows?)
She's my
Never glum,
Constant chum
Second to none
We're under her thumb!
Mum!
