When Katy turns eighty and I ninety-five

Will she still read my verses and laugh at my jive.

Will she still read my limerick and suffer my wit

Its her laughter I’m after in songs I have writ’.

Now Katy’s a lady by any mans measure.

A smile on her face is more precious than treasure.

I sometimes have used her to measure my verse:

Am I writin’ more better? Or have I gotten worse?

And when Katy turns eighty and I ninety-five

The chances are great I might not be alive.

So if she is still reading the scribbles I’ve left,

My poems perhaps will yet survive my death.

I really enjoy the rhythm and flow of your poetry.....Katy is a lucky gal (she says wondering why no one ever writes a poem for her LOL ). Well done, Londis

'Tis true, Lonny, this is my kinda rhyme and rhythm.. 'Tis also true that is a treat to read you.. BUT.. while everyone is smiling so sweetly and chuckling away, I'm entirely collapsed with the thought of a poem for me.. I cannot settle for just thank you.. I'm speechless for anything more.. you have no idea how something like this touches me.. I do thank you.. times 1 billion! love, katy xox.

Katy is an angel of life. Always brilliantly shining and wonderfully kind. She possesses the soul and spirit of a gentle dove. A lady by any sense of the word. Great write about a great woman! Lisa

:) Londis!! Darn it, you beat me to the punch! Katy had a birthday 2 days ago, I told her I was thinking of a poem for her... :D Ah, me, this is quite charming, she'll love it! Great job! There's nothing better than to make Katy smile and feel her deep instinctive appreciation of a piece of poetic art. She's a treasure. Hope your birthday was fun, Katylee!

Oooops! I meant "Katy", not Kitty. Gosh! Sorry for the mixed up. Okay, I'm going to have my coffee now.

Hi Londis:

This one is so good. We poets always write, no matter how old we are, we can always look back at our poetry and smile. Hope kitty will read you when you're ninety.... :)

Starlight On Stone SOUTH (ebook) by Jansen Estrup

The boy-king, Shi-shi, can defeat his enemies if the generals will follow him. He will survive plots by ambitious priesthoods, if the gods smile upon him and if he can find the rig..
