Jim And Kate - Poem by Francis Duggan

The old man Jim talks of his glorious past
Of his physical prime years when he could run as fast
Across the town park as the freshening breeze
That rustles and soughs in the bushes and trees

When he was the district's best miler six decades ago
That was long before time it did become his foe
Against the Country's best milers with success he did compete
When he was tall, young and handsome and a marvelous athlete

Last week sixty years of marriage he did celebrate
With his friends and family and his devoted wife Kate
In her he found true love his soul mate for life
Yes in her he did find such a wonderful wife

Though the years have left them walking slower and gray
Together they walk in the park every day
For great grandparents in their late eighties they have aged quite well
Though time on everyone does eventually tell.
