Ee wha' a life as a mother | 26-Sep-05

A lament of a (secretly quite happy) mother in Yorkshire dialect.

Begins

"Ee wha' a life as a mother
At least if you're 'ampered like me
From mornin' to neet there's some bother
And there will be, I guess, 'til I dee."

poem cites all the jobs she has to do on each day of the week

ends

"Eeh but on a neet
When I look down at t'bed and see them
Six peaceful rosy sleeping faces
I think that, if I were single,
I should be courtin' an' weddin' agean."
