"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Heidi at 80

My mum, Heidi (nee Marx) would have been 80 today. Born in Appenzell, Switzerland, she could see both Austria and Germany from her Alpine home and recalled watching with dread the huge black mass of German soldiers preparing to cross the Rhine (they never did)
I've tried writing poems about her but they always come out trite and don't do her justice.
Happy birthday mum.
