Mums the Word [for Mother’s Day]

Mums the Word  [for Mother’s Day]


‘Seal up your lips and give no words but mum’
Shakespeare Henry IV Part 2 (1590)


Mum’s the word for us today
She’s the one to hear our praise
She’s the one who gave us birth
She’s the one of endless worth

So today let all offspring
Of their Mum just shout and sing
For without Mum where would we be?
Of our success she is the key

‘Keeping mum’ suggests a secret
Surely that is not the treatment
Shout aloud for your dear Mum
Let none of us simply sit dumb

Ken Fisher
