Marty’s World: Meet Emma

Marty’s World: Meet Emma

My mum is called Emma,
and she’s such a dear.
I admire her because
she’s a smart engineer.
She keeps on inventing
new things every day,
designing each piece
in peculiar ways.

Beyond all her gadgets,
she really loves trees:
she spends hours gardening,
and saving the bees.
She plants lots of flowers,
so insects can thrive.
At one point she wanted
to have her own hive.

But Dad disagreed,
because if he gets stung
he gets a bad allergy,
and that is not fun!
Instead, we have plants
that attract butterflies,
and cute caterpillars
of all shapes and size!

Favourite Flowers
Japanese cherry blossoms, purple rhododendrons and dark pink peonies.

Favourite Trees
Angel oaks and weeping willows.

Favourite Quote
You must make women count as much as men; you must have an equal standard of morals.

Emma is named after Emmeline Pankhurst (1858–1928), who was a British political activist and founder of the British suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote.
