Granny’s Colchester, Anon

In Colchester by the sea's embrace,
Lived Granny, with a welcoming grace.
In cafes she'd roam,
Lace-making, a home,
A hostess, her warmth leaves a trace.

The limerick paints a brief and affectionate picture of my Granny's life in Colchester. Granny was a warm and welcoming hostess who enjoyed spending time in cafes, people-watching, and engaging in lacemaking. The verse aims to capture a glimpse of her. The final lines express the sentiment of her passing and the lasting impact she left on the hearts of those who knew her.
