Farewell to Cetti Bampton

 

Our Peg, she was a one-off

No shrinking English rose

She knew her mind and spoke it

To keep us on our toes

Beloved of John and scholars

Advice through thick and thin

Of fish and chips an ardent fan

And not averse to gin

An expert in the garden

A connoisseur of crime

As long as kept in fiction

And read with glass of wine

She liked the odd Sudoku

On crosswords she’d depend

To test her shining intellect

Her talents without end

But lest we hear her tell us

“Just shut it - that's a bore”

We’ll say, we all will miss you

And times that went before               

Farewell to Cetti Bampton
Goodbye my sparky friend
Now with your John and Jackie
Eternity to spend
