And on his really naughty days when everything went wrong | 01-Aug-14

Enquirer is seeking full text and source on what may be a Kathleen Partridge verse, possible entitled 'Her Boy'. Enquirer's great uncle carried the text on a newspaper clipping, much of which is now illegible, during the First World War:

"She looks back and remembers how relieved she used to feel/when someone came to mind her son or keep him...

How glad she used to be at last when bed time came along...

And now that he is fighting far afield she longs in vain to have him as a baby close within her...

Those tantrums would be welcome and the mischief just a joy/and every task a pleasure for the welfare of her boy."
