THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER
An Ode to a True Renaissance Mum

An Ode to a True Renaissance Mum

In honour of Mary Anne Ferrier 

 

To an amazing and inspirational women

This mum of 5

Studied to become a lawyer at age 50

Then became a judge

Then the first female Canon of the church in New Zealand

Always so kind

Loved pugs

So strong,

Funny

Infectious,

Generous.

An angel

Then got sick

With alzheimer’s.

This beautiful , intelligence robbed of its honour.

Wasting away

Unrecognisable

Lost home

Lost friends

And now she is gone.

Peace
