I have a number of Jan's [Coles] publications and have derived much enjoyment from the works of Jan Stewer. I am in my sixties and remember many of his stories read to me by my grandmother.
I do also remember one particular poem which I believe he also penned. This haunts me and thus I would love to know of its origin.
I do hope someone can help me.
A snippet(s) which I remember - in part:
Oh dear, thick ther postmans' always late,
such gossiping ways he knows I hate,
I'll make me-self a cup of tea,
Try ouse I tries and tries but what I get is always wet
I'll get me-self off to bed
and how the sheets be getting thin
and how the moon keeps shinning in
Post here with any information related to Jan Stewer, the CDs, or the Devon Dialect in general.
