Dear Mum

If you receive this letter
I’ll be gone
To who knows where?
To Heaven, I hope.
So please don’t cry.
And give my love to Lop,
Our cat who lost his tail.
And Dad, of course.
I hope that this year’s crop
Of spuds do well.

And give my love to Ruth
I know I promised her
That we would marry in the spring
But tell her that I love her
(And you
And Dad
And Lop, the cat)

I have to go
The big offensive’s come
Don’t worry, Mum
Oh, and please give Ruth
This ring

From John
Your ever-loving son
