Ee Love




“Ee, love, what a sad time to meet –

You could have knocked me right off me feet

When I heard about your Stan –

Such a lovely, lovely, man…


He was all but in his prime –

Well, we all must go sometime –

Ee, love, now, don’t take on so:

Here’s a clean hanky: now bear up, you know

Time will heal…..Eh, your Stan –

Such a kind, lovely man –



Ee, love, it’s late – I must go:

Arthur’s tea won’t make itself! – but you know,

It’s been lovely to see you, though I do have to say

I could wish that we’d met on a happier day…..”



“I wonder who that woman was? –

I can’t be sure,

but don’t think I’ve ever seen her before…

I only ask, because….



She never stopped talking

And only got walking

When she’d worked her way through

Most of th’buffet; mind you,

It’s a rum old to-do

When you can’t do a spread

For the dear, deceased, dead………


But what mithers me head:


My man was called Fred………..

clever - I've read of people who find out where funerals are taking place and then tag along for free food.This poem gives a touch of humour to a delicate subject

Clever, clever, clever. Well crafted entertaining piece that could easily have taken the serious route. Really enjoyed this;)

Another much-needed "voice" to bring us some chuckles on WOL. I can just hear those two women in my head!
Mind you, Dorinda, might the second lady have said "departed" and not "deceased"?
It's the rhythm in my brain...sorry!!
