My sister just called me. She is collecting the poems that my mother used to recite to us when we were small. At that time, it was normal to have electricity cuts once in a while. We could not read so, at night, we gathered around the dining room table and my mother would recite poems for us. Today she asked me for several and many of them could be found through Google as we only remembered parts of it. But there is one that is nowhere to be found. Google is not perfect. So I´m in charge of writing whatever I remember. She is counting on my remembering all of it as I had the best memory of all my siblings. So, my dear lotters, I will come back if I can in an hour or two. Wish me luck.

@Happy2BeMe I sent it to my sister with a copy to myself. Just in case I forget it later on

My Mum loved poetry too. When she moved into the nursing home we made a little booklet of all her favourite poems and a couple of new ones we thought she'd like. She could still recite many of them and we'd read them to her when we visited. It wasn't unusual for us to start reading one and for her to take over reciting from memory.

It is so beautiful! And we recover our youth and our mother when she was young at the same time.

I hope so too. They were much part of the memories of my childhood.
