Many years ago I had some good pieces of jewellery,
left to me by an aunt.
We were burgled and most of it was taken.
Three months later, they came back
and took the rest of it.
I was really too young to inherit such finery then,
and didn't insure it properly.
I'd like to say I don't miss any of it.
But the truth is,
there was one beautiful Victorian butterfly brooch,
which I have never quite forgotten.
