My Mummy

My Mummy is amazing
because she’s more than just my Mum.
She is so many other things.
Let me tell you some.

My mummy is an angel.
But she must have lost her wings.
She does wear pretty dresses
and sounds lovely when she sings.

My mummy is a deer.
Though she hasn’t any fur.
She has two legs instead of four
and there’s not a tail on her.

My mummy is a honey.
But she’s not a sticky treat.
I think she does smell really nice
and Daddy says she’s sweet.

My mummy is a treasure.
Though she’s not kept in a chest.
A pirate wouldn’t like her much
but I think she’s the best.

I don’t know how my Mummy
can be all of these, and more.
But I do know she’s my mummy,
and of that I can be sure!

    • Hi Clara,

      You were very nice to your mum on Mothers’ Day. I’m sure she appreciated it.

      I got the idea for this poem from the fact that I always called people honey. But they aren’t really honey!
