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.
