Mam
The story behind the poem

This poem came about after spending some time at my nan's house (whom we all call Mam). I thought of all the things that made her house so unique, things that were stable and always brought me back to my childhood.

I moved about a lot when I was younger, lived in many houses and therefore my nan's house is one place that has been constant.

This poem is about all the little things I love and will miss when she goes, all the things that convey for me what a real and warm person my nan is.
