Poem introduction

The following poem is dedicated to a whole generation of women - that would have been my grandmother's generation - who did hand-painting on china and many of us in my generation have their hand-painted china in our china cupboards that we get out on special occasions and so on. And I've always been fascinated by that generation and their handwork and so on and this poem is a little tribute to them.
