Christmas and New Year poem written by a resident!
Freda Gunton Lodge Residents
The New Year started with storms galore
The Beast from the East causing flooding and more.
The first Royal event when Prince Louis came
‘Though it took three days to tell us his name.
Early in March twelve ducklings arrived.
They went to the river – we hope they survived.
The spring and the summer turned out to be boiling.
Fifty days rainless – plants withered and spoiling.
Another great day, the nineteenth of May, Prince Harry was wed
To an American beauty, enough has been said.
Everyone watched on their different TV’s
With lunch tray on wobbly knees.
The kitchen came up with a right royal meal
That gave us all that luxurious feel.
The soccer World Cup had us cheering aloud
The young English team making all of us proud.
In early September Alistair Cook scored a ton
To end his career as it all had begun.
Party conferences came with speeches galore
Confusing us all and wanting no more.
Brexit goes on as no doubt it will
Until next year when we’ve all had our fill.
The 12th of October, Eugenie’s great day
With arguments continuing on who ought to pay.
A pregnant Meghan became all the news
To cheer us up from October’s blues.
The Leicester City tragedy spelt grief through the land
We lost a humble sportsman with a very generous hand.
The cost of Christmas shopping brought us all down to earth
What would the lord think of the way we remember his birth.
