'What Is A Mum?' Poem Typographic Print

Bespoke Verse
£14.00


This mum poem is a witty, affectionate verse about mothers and all they do for us.

Our unique A4 mum print makes the perfect gift for mums, whether it's for a birthday, Christmas, mother's day or even a new parent.

Written by Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller, this poem appeared in VOGUE in December 2012.

Whether she's a fairy cake baker, a tireless clapper or a list compiler, everyone will recognise the heroine described in 'What is a Mum?'

The print comes unframed but we would be happy to frame it for you. 

For a small fee, you may also add a personalised message at the bottom.

Font colours available are purple, pink and taupe on white card or black on brown card.


The poem is printed onto the highest quality GF Smith A4 card (330gsm) using Dura-Bright waterproof ink. There is no mount around the print.

Each print is lovingly produced to order. The unframed prints arrive flat, wrapped in cellophane, in a super stiff envelope.

For an extra fee we can frame the print for you. The lightweight wooden frames are either matt white with a slightly grained effect, smooth white or slim matt black. Frames have a hook for wall hanging. The front is perspex.

Each frame is hand finished in the UK by Fine Art Trade Guild commended framers. The product is dispatched in a purpose-made picture box.

The print is H30 x W21cm (A4) and when framed is H34.5 x W25.7 x D2cm.

What is a Mum?

A weaner & musher, a milky tooth brusher

A rocker & feeder, a storytime reader

A fairy cake baker & fancy dress maker

A wiper & washer & bad habit squasher

A dirty sheet changer, a room rearranger

A keen stain remover, a wielder of hoover

A peeler & cooker, appointment booker

A loyal defender & Christmas card sender

A playdate arranger, alerter of danger

A suitcase packer, a dishwasher stacker

A ‘be quiet’ hisser, a cuddly kisser

An early riser, a birthday surpriser

A list compiler, a proud parent smiler

A talented wrapper, a tireless clapper

A lavatory flusher, a praiser & gusher

A listening ear, a good refereer

A source of a fiver, a free taxi driver

A smoothie blender & broken heart mender

A consummate shopper, embarrassing bopper

A grocery bagger & homework nagger

That’s what makes a Mum!
