A MINER'S WIFE

a poem by Edwin Keith Jepson, UK - poetry writer, author, poet

She sat in a chair by the fire,
Remembering the days of old,
When she was married to a miner,
In those days,
When the coal, was more precious than gold,
She brought up five little children,
Who made her hard life complete,
And although she hadn't much money,
They were clothed, and had shoes on their feet,
Her husband was a good provider,
Who toiled down below in the mine,
And in those days, there were no television,
But the wireless would do very fine,
Eventually, as they grew older,
The children repaid back their Mum,
They all had good jobs,
And their wages were high,
And no more did she count every sum,
She sat in a chair by the fire,
Remembering the days long ago,
When she was married to a miner,
It was hard,but she never let go,

Dedicated to my Mother,
