A collection of my mother's poems (romantic, nostalgic and humorous) set in two areas of britain (the midlands and tyneside) between 1939-1995 More
Edna Robinson's poems are a treasure-trove of memories, spanning more than 50 years. They cover wartime life, romance and motherhood - all set in the Midlands. After moving to work on Tyneside, she wrote poems reflecting various aspects of daily life there, including a famous footballer's legs, how to find a window-cleaner, and much more. The 'joys' of public transport also receive some attention. By turns, amusing, wistful or deeply moving, these poems celebrate life, love, and most important of all - the discovery of contentment.
