Jemimah is my name,
But oh, I have another;
My father always calls me Meg,
And so do Bob and mother;
Only my sister, jealous of
The strands of my bright hair,
'Jemimah - Mima - Mima!'
Calls, mocking, up the stair.

Today's offering from Walter de la Mare, this term's poet!

(With a slight change to the spelling for obvious reasons!!)

I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
