ODE TO OLD OR I SHALL WEAR PURPLE.....





Ode to Old

When I am old-
Really really old-
And cannot see -

Red balls of rouge-
Riding-
High on my cheeks,

Black lines-
Arching-
Over my eyes, 
Gravy stains covering-
Yellow flowers-
On my good blue dress.

When I am old-
And cannot see -
Will you please do- 
My grooming for me?

  1. Particularly like the last stanza, kind of like a "little ditty".

  2. Love it! I'll be there for you, if you'll be there for me.
    (But if we're both in the same boat . . . )
