My Great Aunt Elizabeth - Poem by Raymond Farrell

My great aunt Lizzy
Remembered reading about
The Battle of Little Bighorn
In the newspaper
When she was ten
Said it caused
Quite a stir
She was never sick
Hardly a day in her life
Died quietly in her sleep
In 1971
Having seen a man
Land on the moon
In 1969
To be able
To see
Such change
And development
In one life span
Is impressive.

    I don't think we appreciate the developments of our own lifetimes. (I used a rotary phone until I was in my 20s) : -) (Report) Reply
