Spiritual Poems



I wrote my first poem a few years after my mother told me the story of the wild primrose that my father picked on Leap Year Day in the village of Coogue, Co. Mayo,  Ireland, where I was born.heart  
The root was attached, so my mother planted it in a pot and it flowered indoors, all year round for three years. When my father passed on May 10th 1983, it was planted on his grave. My parents were the inspiration for my first poem 'The Primrose'.
W
ith the sudden passing of my beloved mother on
November 11th 2001, I have dedicated all my poems to their memory.heart 

My mother's choice of name for me was Attracta, she had wanted to call her first & second daughter that name, but the tradition was to name children after family names. My grandmother RIP said "well aren't there plenty of family names besides one that no one ever heard of..." so my dear dad (always the peacemaker) as he carried me out of the house for the Christening said "as she was born on the Feast of Sts. Peter & Paul we'll put Pauline with it, and she will like it better when she grows up..." he often called me by the nickname Polyanthum, so in gratitude to my wonderful parents,  I use both names on this site.
