Lundi limerick #85

A lady I knew came from Trentham

had wobbly legs and oft bent`em

She had very strange powers

received lots of flowers

and never quite knew who had sent`em


Trentham, pronounced locally as Trent em, is on the way from Baldwins Gate, Newcastle, Staffordshire, where I grew up, to Longton, Stoke on Trent, where my future wife lived. I passed through there often!

It is a suburb of the city of Stoke-on-Trent in North Staffordshire, England, south-west of the city centre and south of the neighbouring town of Newcastle-under-Lyme. It is separated from the main urban area by open space and by the Trent and Mersey Canal and the River Trent, giving it the feel of a village.
