" WISDOM OF THE AGES " REACHED OUT TO ME,
FROM " BEHIND THE WRINKLES " LONG AGO , YOU SEE;
NO KNOWLEDGE, OR INTENTION, TO EVER GROW OLD ,
PRICELESS "GIFT OF LOVE ", NEVER BOUGHT OR SOLD !
GENERATION TO GENERATION, PASSED EYE TO EYE ,
ALL-INCLUSIVE, NO COMPREHENSION OF "YOURS" OR "MY" ;
OURS WAS A TREASURE HANDED DOWN FROM ABOVE ,
TIMELESS, AGELESS, UNCONDITIONAL, EVERLASTING LOVE !
UNSEEN WATERS, FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH, IN ENDLESS FLOW,
GENTLY SOAKED A FAMILY GARDEN WHERE FLOWERS GROW;
LIFE'S JOYS ARE VIVID BLOSSOMS ON THIS PATH WE TROD,
NO COMPLAINTS, JUST CELEBRATION, AT ONE WITH GOD !
AM I AGING? MAKE YOUR JUDGMENT, NEVER, DEAR ,
WAITING FOR MY NEXT ADVENTURE KEEPS CHILDHOOD NEAR;
SOUL to SOUL, shared LAUGHs transport us on HIGH ROAD miles,
PRECIOUS MEMORIEs ARE THE MAGIC OF LIFELONG SMILEs!
NEVER LET your SENSE OF HUMOR GET LOST BY THE WAY,
IT WILL KEEP YOU OUT OF REACH OF "COME WHAT MAY";
WRAP your TROUBLES, BIND them TIGHTLY with STRANDs of JOY
Every SENIOR's CHILDHOOD LAUGHs were the "FAVORITE TOY"!

26 OCT. 1996
IMO "Granny",
