I wish you'd seen them
Now they've dead

Do you know this poem? Do you have any clues to help us find it?


So are we.
A pity it is winter still
You ought to see our daffodils.
We had some snowdrops in this bed
I wish you'd seen them, but they're dead.
And in this other one we grow
Those what d'you call them in a row.
Of course you know the ones I mean
Such pretty flowers, red and green.
Well, not exactly red, but pink
Some funny foreign name, I think.........

This poem goes on at great length and I can remember most of it. My mother used to recite it 70 or 80 years ago. She said the title was "Mrs Mole"

I have a copy of this poem which was often recited by my aunt. But I know bits are missing e.g. tar on her hat "and there's a little on your hat, however did you manage that"
I would love to have a complete copy if that is possible
