Sherry, like the Drink - poem

I was driving myself out to Oakville in the summer just before 3rd year. I was on the QEW highway, and these few lines just came to me:

There once was a woman,
Who's laughter could summon,
Smiles on face full of frowns,

There once was a teacher,
Who's kids loved to greet her,
And play with her on the playground,

Her name was Sherry,
You know, like the drink!

That's all I had at that moment. But the "Sherry, like the drink" part came from a saying that my mom used to tell people, to allow them to remember her name.
