‘Spike Milligan was a gas man with many strings to his bow. I have always loved his work. This poem, dedicated to his daughter reflects how I feel about my family.
To My Daughter Jane by Spike Milligan
I cannot tell you in words,
I cannot tell you in sounds,
I cannot tell you in music
How much I love you.
I can only tell you in trees,
I might be heard to say it
In the bark of a seal on moon misty nights.
It can be heard on the hinges of dawn.
Tho’ my muse is slain,
All else says I love you Jane.’
