Poet Helena Mott

This fine plaque marks the house that poet Helena Mott lived in.

Location: 115 Maze Hill, Greenwich, London, SE10 8XQ

Description: Poet Helena Mott lived here from 1941 and died here in February 1951 and has one of the finest plaques on the front of the house including one of her poems:

The summer's breath is spent upon the hills
Behold, remember and rejoice
She seems to say
I give you colour
That the colour of your winter
May be eased
Until I come again.

Her Husband Joseph was the Art Director of Royal Doulton. Their two daughters, who never married were Ursula, who worked for UNESCO and Helena, who was an actress. When Joseph died Helena gave up the stage to look after her mother. After Helena (senior) died in 1951 Ursula moved in with Helena and the two Miss Motts lived together until they both passed away recently.
