Best Poem of Evelyn Macdonald

For Bill - My Brother

Who was aged five when I was born
My brother
Who hid my toys and broke my dolls
My brother
Who avoided his sister at school all day
My brother
Who tolerated my teenage years
My brother
Who as an adult became a friend
My brother
Who mellowed with each passing year
My brother
Who supported my desire to immigrate
My brother
Who was there when others weren't
My brother
Who buried our parents while I was gone
My brother
Who cherished every visit I made
My brother
Who had his ticket to visit me here
My brother
Who unexpectedly died ...

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

[Hata Bildir]
