Biography of Evelyn Macdonald

Immigrated to Canada in 1967. Married with one adult son. Work as Admin. Assistant at a major hospital in Toronto. As one of my poems depicts - I'm not a poet, I merely love to rhyme, but I do so much admire all the wonderfully written poetry in this website written by much more sophisticated writers than me.
I enjoy reading all poetry although I dont always understand it. I cant seem to write poems without telling a story (ie a begining, a middle and an end) .

Old Age Is For The Birds

When I was young and in my prime I took my health for granted
No major ills in middle age I never raved nor ranted
So who decreed that when I reached my so called 'golden years'
A multitude of problems would reduce my life to tears
The feet that once could run a mile now shuffle round the block
The legs that once were straight and true now cause my knees to knock
Just getting up now gets me down, the hip joints creak and crack
Those dizzy spells sure slow me down, and spasms wrack my back
