Maisie - Poem by Francis Duggan

Maisie only has memories of for her what used to be
Of old friends of the past she will never more see
In Birmingham in England where she lived near six decades ago
Long before time it did become her foe

A widower for ten years and recently a grandmother for the seventh time
In the nineteen fifties Maisie was in her physical prime
She is looking well for one of eighty four
But Birmingham in England she may see never more

A strong English accent she does retain
A piece of the home Country that with her till death will remain
Any of her Birmingham friends she has not seen for years
But for her distant memories she does not have any tears

Maisie is young at heart though in years she is old
And for her age she is quite attractive to behold
She only has memories of the what used to be
And of people in Birmingham she may never more see.
