Each year the Junior School at Diocesan School for Girls, Auckland holds a Mothering Sunday service. For the 2007 service I was asked to set this text by the head of Junior School, Deirdre McOnie. From the perspective of a child, the poem seen as an essential and permanent bond between the two generations, and links us all into a wider world of singing.
