Ageing gracefully


          In the Fall of Love

 

Golden leaves, sweaters and chills

Winter sliding down the hills

Arthritis,medicine and pills

Are somebody else’s ills.



Shaky knees that disengage

Bones turning to cartilage

White hair growing on my crown

Are incidents I disown.

 

My heart beats much louder now

More than I care to allow.

I get sensational thrills,

Sans those damned blood pressure pills

 

and if I were not so shy

I would write to "Santa dear,

Please, when next time you come by,

Knock louder, so I can hear."

Mary, we all are going to get older, but soul stays young. I love your humor and your wit.
Love, Ankin

A wonderful read. Age does creep up on us all, doesn't it?
Reviewed by Daring Sunshine
Did Santa bring it or did you depend on your wit? Hope the latter happened and you find true love.

Ouch! That hurts, doesn't it? Hoe you'll feel better soon.

Clever...and time does sneak up on us.

Do you suppose Santa can fix?
