Cruise ships arrive in Funchal….. Cyprus friends too!
A C h a n c e M e e t i n g
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
