'Human Affection', by Stevie Smith - a Poem for Mothers
A poem for mothers everywhere
This card makes a wonderful Mother's Day card or a birthday card for mothers.
Stevie Smith's first collection, A Good Time Was Had By All, appeared in 1937. Her work is often characterised by co-existing contradictions – being simultaneously jokey and serious; colloquial and formal; sophisticated and child-like. The short poem in this card is full of resonance and depth.
Anita Klein, whose work The End of Autumn makes a beautiful accompaniment to Stevie Smith’s poem for this card, is a widely-known and well-loved artist and print-maker. Her website is www.anitaklein.com.

The words inside...
Mother, I love you so.
Said the child, I love you more than I know.
She laid her head on her mother's arm,
And the love between them kept them warm.
by Stevie Smith (1902 - 1971)
