The Meeting

31 Jul

She flung herself into my arms

I succumbed to her innumerable charms

Who could this be

But Aunty G

Whom I finally met after several false alarms.


July 27th was a blessed day

One for which I fervently did pray

After 4 months and 3 years

She allayed certain fears

And hugged all my cares away.


A kinder soul I haven’t seen

A happier meeting there couldn’t have been

Come what may

Forever and a day

I’ll remember my time with the Limerick Queen.


My only wee grief

Was that it was too brief

But then I’ll always want more

And I’ll meet again I’m sure,

My precious heart-snatcher thief!

    there once was a lady named Aunty G,
    She could be as limericky as can be,
    She shook me aquiver with a scream,
    I tell you, it was real, twas no dream
    but with that, she woke the auntie g in me:-)

    Lucky you!!
    It’s been on my wishlist to meet her too.
    Twice I visited her hometown on work , but couldn’t meet her both times.
    But someday I will:)

    M…: As do I. 🙂

    Aunty G: 😯 WHAT??? Only a smile?

    Shivani: Yes, yes; balle balle and all that.

    M4: Immensely. 😀

    maidinmalaysia: And now she won’t write
    Is giving us a fright
    While her smile’s so fine
    We still need her lines
    To make our online times all bright.

    rajni20000: Amen to that! 🙂

    Thank you for the banner, my darling girl
    And now you’ve got us all a-swirl
    With this brand new word
    That we’ve all just heard
    Is *totalutely* a gem of a pearl!

  15. Orange Jammies August 7, 2009 at 3:31 pm #

    Aunty G: “A gem of a pearl” is a stellar phrase
    One worthy of the highest praise
    Your every word-ploy
    Brings us much joy
    You don’t cease to entertain and amaze!
