A Madeira Holiday!

March 3, 2017
CHANCE MEETING

“Fancy meeting you here!”

Cruise ships arrive in Funchal….. Cyprus friends too!

Walking in Madeira Dear

Who’s that grinning ear-to-ear?

Val’ and Mike of Cyprus time

Lyrical, I start to rhyme….

 

Friends are here, and on a cruise

Not much chance of food and booze?

Sailing in, just for the day

Speechless, what more could they say?

 

“Thought you were in Cyprus still..

Has that island lost its thrill?”

“Did not like those summers hot

And those walks, we’ve done the lot?”

 

They recalled the U.K. Quiz (U.K.C.A. Club)

“Up and Under” was a whizz!  (Our team name)

Cruising now along the Med’

Memories of Cyprus…. dead!

 

Aberystwyth is their home

No more with those Wand’rers roam!

Sadness at the death of friends

Grateful thanks to Cyprus sends.. (Not for the deaths!)

 

Great coincidence, we meet

On a sunny Funchal “street”

‘Part with lots of hugs and kiss

Social life in Paphos ‘miss!   xxxy
