A tribute to Franca Clewes

An umbrella in the rain
Soothing comfort for your pain
She could shade you from the sun
Be the fuel that made you run
Had a way of seeing through
All the mayhem that you knew
Had your back when things got rough
Gentle mannered yet really tough
She loved to decorate her every home
Always wood and never chrome
She taught herself to Venetian plaster
A skill that's really hard to master
A broken toilet or lock she could repair
Continued cutting her own hair
Dogs and cats - she loved them too
Saw only good in what they do
Infinite beauty, inside and out
Impressing others – what's that about?
Because her path was clear and pure
She always made you feel secure
Was not impressed by power or wealth
And never got caught up inside her self
Truly grounded as anyone could be
She had no ego - a spirit free
To listen more than a need to speak
Franca really was - Unique
