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. πŸ™‚

    Aunty G: 😯 WHAT??? Only a smile?

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

    M4: Immensely. πŸ˜€

    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! πŸ™‚

    With this brand new word
    That we’ve all just heard
    Is *totalutely* a gem of a pearl!

    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!
