Day 27 – Super Gran

Today is Mothers’ Day in the UK. So here is a poem my mum wrote, about her mum. My mum is one of the reasons I write and love poetry. She once woke me up at 5am to tell me about an idea she’d had for a writing project – that kind of excitement and passion for ideas and writing is something I will always be grateful to her for. Now, if only I could be as healthy as her mum, my Nan – then I really would be winning at life…

Have a go at writing a poem about someone who is a different generation to you – they could be older or younger, but think about what interests you or inspires you about that generation and have a go! Remember, you can always share your poems with me at


I am a children's author and poet living in Cambridgeshire. My first collection of poetry, 'There's a Poem in my Dungarees!' was published in November 2021 by Magic Daisy Publishing.
