Topic: Twilight Years of Life (07/02/09)

TITLE: From Booties to Bunnies

When I was a baby my booties were pink,
And my Momma would bathe me in the kitchen sink.
But then I grew up and switched to high heels
While my paycheck paid for my new Chevy wheels.

Those were the "Dawning" years...the beginning of life
Before I got busy becoming a mother and wife.
Those carefree years went by much too fast
And before I knew it - they became just part of my past.

But now it's my twilight years and my shoes are black
And when I walk to the market, I huff 'n puff my way back;
So it's perfectly obvious that my youth has been spent
Because my "get up and go" has "got up and went."

So I get up each morning, and just to sharpen my wits...
I pick up the paper and read the "Obits",
Then if my name isn't there - I know I'm not dead;
So I take off my bunny slippers - and hop back in bed.

The following is an Inscription on a clock in Chester Cathedral:

-Ages Of Man-

"When, as a child, I laughed and wept. Time crept.
When, as a youth, I dreamed and talked. Time Walked.
When I became a full-grown man, Time ran.
And later, as I older grew, Time flew.
Soon I shall find while traveling on, Time gone.
Will God have saved my soul by then?
Amen."

Charming, charming. You put a smile on this old face of mine.

The first stanza last 2 lines need a little reworking. The rest has all been said before in other rhymes. Just a little was fresh. Rhymning was good though. Keep writing.

I enjoyed this short poem in spite of its not-so-original content. Your rhythm was a bit off in places, but I'm no expert. Keep writing.
