Written by our very own poet, Eileen Mann
Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness
I desperately want an excuse to dress
For a W.I. meeting in October
Fat chance of that until the Pandemic is over.
Oh how I want to meet my pals
My super gorgeous WI gals
It’s a reason to bake a cake or two
To share gladly amongst our 52.
We start our meetings
With wine and greetings
(The more wine we consume
the noisier becomes the room)
A quick catchup ,it seems so long
A lively singing of our Jerusalem song.
Get the business out of the way
And who is our Speaker and what will they say?
The topics we cover are varied it’s true
And would be surprising if revealed to a few
Who think we are all old and past it.
Plenty of life in us yet and we can prove it!
As soon as this Covid virus is beaten
It’s back to the Hall our way we’ll be beatin’
It’ll be gals reunited after so much time
Our great Tysoe W.I.waits; ours, yours and mine.
