Richard Langston's heartfelt Mother's Day poem

From Sunday Morning, 10:40 am on 9 May 2021

Born to a Lebanese immigrant family in Dunedin, and a Country Calendar director by trade, Richard Langston is constantly refreshing his acquaintance with the country he calls home through the form of poetry.

He joins the show on Mother's Day to recite a poem to his own mother -- titled 'There' -- from his recently-released book of poems, 'Five O'Clock Shadows'
