Eighty-One - Poem by jerry hughes

Ye gods, eighty one!
Who'd have thought it?
Certainly not I.
So there's one delightful
person to thank.
Alison.
She's stood by me in every
conceivable way.
Lucky?
You bet your bippy I am!

    Salute to (as Yeats puts it) an old man's eagle mind. (Report) Reply

    I blush as I read your beautiful words. succinct, I think is the word you would have used to describe this octogenarian reflection: 'Not a word out of place', is mine. Bless your heart. Love, Allie x x x (Report) Reply
