Eleventh Street

There stood a house on Eleventh Street,

That I frequently drove by,

Sometimes a little old lady

Would catch my eye.



She’d be there, watering her yard,

And, not to waste a drop!

But everything was watered and green

Before she would stop.



There was a vine of ivy on

The east side of the house ~

Some elms that made it through the drought,

Some spreaders on the south.



One day I noticed dryness, for

The blades of grass were thin;

Something had happened and I wished

To see it green again.



....I used to have a big yard

Where the grass was lush and green;

Pots of pretty flowers ~

A big swing in between.



But, like the house on Eleventh Street,

My blades are thin and dry;

And no one comes to do the work ~

I watch it die.



I don’t expect the world to

Understand my growing old.

They’re just like me ~ Perhaps they’ll see

As I did ~ long ago.
