    This poem was written by my friend, Carole.

    Three stanzas about her family.

    Solid dependable always there,
    Silent yet study filling the space in his favourite chair,
    Happy with a pint of hobgoblin,
    Or on his red tractor down the lane,
    Studying intently the fields of grain,
    Huge hands like lion paws,
    A real gentleman whose eyes shine blue,
    Always got a hug for me or maybe you.

    The excitement on her little face,
    As she appears around the kitchen door,
    Opens up a feeling within me of complete awe,
    Somehow I created her from within,
    Those sticky finger marks, that joyful grin,
    She is one of the most amazing people that I know,
    Having her in my life makes my heart grow.

    She is like my inner child,
    Slightly crazy, seeing the funny side,
    Her laugh starts somewhere unknown,
    She always tries to keep it in,
    Irrepressible and wild,
    Making up her own rules as she goes on,
    A non conformist both warm and kind,
    You may forget her name,
    But never how she made you feel.
