It was a severe shock to learn that Viv of Vivinfrance’s Blog died unexpectedly on 5th July. Fittingly, Wordle 256 has used words inspired by her, and I have taken them in turn to frame a tribute to this wonderful lady who over the years has inspired so much respect and friendship with her sparkling posts and poetry, and with her witty comments.
So ready to laugh, she’d not wish us to weep
As so well we can at the shock;
She would spice with her wit that she’s fallen asleep
With an unfinished pattern (quilt block).
She would lift up our spirits to fly like a bird,
And not tolerate keeping them low,
But with phrases that twinkle, the warmth of each word.
Cajole us in wisdom to grow.
