Mother, I Come by MaudeEna Headlam, is a touching revelation of Diana, the Princess of Wales.
She was named The Fairy Princess, but the verses reveal it was not easy being a princess caught between the modern and traditional world. The poems are an expression of her vulnerability and her strengths.
The lines are filled with her pain of adjusting to a world of duty. There are words of anger as she deals with betrayals and the hand of fate. But at the end, there’s a sweet tenderness as she thinks of attaining in death what she was denied in life.
