IN THE CAVES OF El SACRA MONTE
Ahh, I got a real lift today--
bananas going for seven cents
less a pound, and with coupons,
even less than that. Terrific, eh?
And the sun's just fine now, look,
and the weather's clear. So I'll be
getting home just fine alright,
thank you. Won't even need the
cane much. And can ya believe it,
this morning I found a perfect angle
at last for watching tv without that
merciless arthritis raging up my
spine. Yeah, things are going
good, you bet. I even spotted a
new bird fluttering around the back
yard feeder yesterday. And guess
what, I can read the newspapers
again with my new glasses and
got up only THREE TIMES last
night to pee. Imagine that. And
hey, you watch, my daughter's not
going to forget to send me a birthday
card this year again, not again Yes
just look up now, the sun's truly fine
out there and with the breezes
blowing all fair through the yard
today, sure, I'm counting my blessings.
But oh, ohh good God! Didn't I once
dance with the Gypsies all night
long to ancient, wailing laments
ravaging my soul under la luna
llana in the caves of El Sacra Monte?

|This is interesting-great ending-I sometimes feel this way though not because of age, but because of how my health has deteriorated over the past few years from fibromyalgia. Though an internal world and the natural world can give an unequaled beauty and riches, there is still always a part of us that wants to still "dance with the gypsies," or, in my own case, be one :) Excellent work.|
