Extracts from the book
A mothers recipe
(tried and test)
Take a pound of courage,fold it firmly round,
that's the main ingredient,
you'll need for where he's bound......
There's an areoplane coming,it's coming real soon,
it's bringing the sun,it's bringing the moon
It's bringing us christmas,and it's
can't wait for my present,and it's nearly here......
Postcard from Home
I wish you were here,so I could cook your tea,
pick up your laundry,and slap your knee,
I wish I could hear you fall up the stair,
when you come in late,all worse for wear........
