Two Old Ladies


Once two old ladies lived together.
They were friends in every weather.
Though they fussed,
And though they cussed,
They somehow stuck together.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The two ladies, here, happened to be one of my grandmothers and her cousin. They were too old to live alone, and the family thought it good that they try living together for support. If they were here today, they would laugh along with me as I laugh with them. That’s just the type of women they were.

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
