I have known Hayley since 1980. I have been suffering from…. nostalgia recently.
A N O S T A L G I C W E D D I N G T I M E
‘Long time ago since Greenlands High (Bispham)
‘Was chasing moonbeams in the sky
With Arran, Sumner Winter Queen (The headmistress)
“Dear” Lodgey, Brigid on the scene (Deputy head teachers)
Fine lunchtimes: Zola, Moliere
With little time to stand and stare
A Busy Bee, Good Work Book Girl
She had her tutors in a whirl!
Success: St. Hilda’s, dreaming spires
Proud Oxford Hayley soon inspires
A German journey, friend as well
For Bispham’s “Academic Belle”
A wedding, Bispham, lovely boys
To give Dear H… continued joys
Escape: to Cumbria she flies
A marriage over, heavy sighs!
In Ulverston she shines again
But never flirting, “No more men!”
Until a builder, Gray, by name
For more than building won his fame!
He downed his tools and made his move
He liked to party and to groove
Impressed our Hayley, Luke and Ben
He really is the best of men!
A celebration near the Lakes
With lots of booze and wedding cakes
Dear friends and family to cheer
A glass or four of fav’rite beer?
Let’s raise a glass to Hayl’ and Chris
This evening we would never miss!
Long life, success, a smiling mum
A frothing flute of finest Mumm!!! Zum besten Wohl, Hayley! A long time ago?
