b)  Why does Derry's mother not want him to go back to visit Mr. Lamb?

d)  What does the poet's smile in the poem 'My Mother at Sixty - Six show?

Dear Student,

d) The poet's smile signifies the pain that she tries to hide behind it. Her parting ways and smile gives hope to her mother that they will meet again. She smiles to end things on a good note.
