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


 


                        until now.


                         How?


 


                        Could I be SIXTY?
