Delight and laughter are your stock and trade, With rhyme you carry our worries away, You’re much more fun than a penny arcade. Words sparkle like an egg by Faberge, Dancing across poems like a cabaret. A footle on poop, you’re back in the loop, With words tastier than alphabet soup. The limericks you write are out of sight, Leaving us soupers no time to regroup, Before the next poem gives pure delight. Written 07/07/2015 for my dear friend Jan. "When you smile all Soupers smile with you"

I so agree with your fondness for Jan and her wonderful poetry. I am still smiling when I think about that limerick I read of hers this morning. I am sure she will appreciate this sweet and wonderful tribute to her.

Hello Connie, Jan certainly is the life of the party here on soup. PS would loose a lot of its lustre if we did not have her to brighten our days with a giggle. love Shane xxx

Hi Kim, i was told Jan had been a bit quiet of late so had to write something to tell her she was missed by everyone. I think Jan brings a ray of sunshine into a lot of lives with her wit and humour. she is in my opion a jewel in the crown of poetry soup. Thanks for the kind words kim. love Shane xxxx
