I wrote the this poem when I turned 50, thinking that was terribly old. I changed the title when I turned 60 and thought, "now I am ancient." Presently, at over 70 years of age, I sure wish I were 60 again.
I AM GOING TO BE SIXTY?
Where did it go,
the glow ?
When did I get old,
the skin fold,
Around the eyes,
And the thighs?
The mirror told me,
but I did not see
Could I be SIXTY?
