A grizzled old man

lives out back on the hill.

In a tiny log cabin

We call him Ole Bill.

Ole Bill wears a plaid shirt

and tattered old jeans

On his head rests an old cap

His boots split at the seams.

He has three dirty old hounds

They look tired and worn.

But Ole Bill he loves them

And he tells them each morn.

The neighborhood kids

Visit Bill every day.

They sit by his rocker

To hear all he does say.

He tells them tall tales

With a twinkle in his eye.

They listen with wonder

He looks wistful and sighs.

Ole Bill hes so tired

The kids bring him joy.

They love to hear stories

Bout when Bill was a boy.

Hes seen 90 years of mornings

Eaten three times that many meals.

Says prayers every evening

By his bed he always kneels.

This poem goes on and on

For one simple reason.

Old Bill he must die

But I hope not this season.

Sharron: I used to know someone just like this, but for the life of me I can't remember who he was. This was a very nice poem.
Love, Susan

Touching and uplifting...our society could use a lot more "ole Bills"...and could perhaps pay a lot more attention to them. Thank you for this enjoyable read.

Loved this, Sharron, Ole Bill sounds like a wonderful old man, and my ambition would be to become just like Ole Bill one day, if the Lord allows. (My wife says I'm already Ole Bill.) Enjoyed this very much.
