A Lively Old Man - Poem by Francis Duggan

For his age he is full of elan
He is such a lively old man
He laugh and he dance and he sing
To him life is a wonderful thing
His hair may be silvery gray
But he makes the most of every day
On his last birthday he turned eighty three
But he does not look his age most would agree
A great grandfather without a wife
He has always led a single life
The one who gave birth to his daughter another man wed
She is now in the place of the dead
That old men should rest up for to die
His lifestyle does seem to belie.
