Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are keeping well and those not I wish well soon.
Today I have something a little different to share with you.
Aaron telephoned me the other day when he was out doing his rounds (he's a postman) and asked me if I could make something for his work colleague to give to his wife whose Mum had passed away recently.
He wanted something made using the poem from Hayley's funeral in Coronation street.
So with some very brief details from Aaron I set off to 'find' said poem - Google is a genius!!!
The poem was written by Mary Elizabeth Frye in 1932 when a Jewish friend who was staying with her in Baltimore at the time was upset that she hadn't had the chance to 'stand by her Mother's grave and shed a tear' because of the increasing anti-Semitic unrest in Germany at the time.
It was the first poem she had ever written and only circulated it privately and never copyrighted it.
So with even less detail on what he wanted the end result to be this is what I came up with:
It is a really beautiful poem and I was quite pleased with the end result.
I am also thrilled to report that Aaron's work colleague loved it.
The funeral is today and he plans to give this to his wife a Special Keepsake.
I hope she can find some comfort in the words.
