The mother of a boy and girl now grown up looks back on a time when she suffered from too much advice.
Children's Poems
' If poetry comes not as naturally as leaves to a tree it had better not come at all,' Keats said. It does come naturally to a number of children even when they are quite young. ROBERT GITTINGS discusses the significance of children's poems and the way in which parents can best help a child who likes poetry and likes to make up its own verses.
Poems read by Anne Greenland and Frank Duncan
