A Good Woman

My mother was born in 1916, In the small Queensland town of Innisfail, The ravages of war as yet unseen, Peace was maintained, no matter how fragile; Philippa Eleanor, eldest of four, Quietly attractive and dignified, With limited avenues to explore, But possessed of integrity and pride; Pale pink was hr choice for her wedding day, Her bridegroom was the dark-haired, blue-eyed Keith, A shy countryman with little to say, But with his love and support to bequeath. My mother died in her sixty-ninth year, Mourned by all those to whom she had been dear.
