The Former Rose Of Koonwarra - Poem by Francis Duggan

She was the Rose of Koonwarra when she was in her prime
But now she's in her late forties and bowing to father time
Her daughter now is twenty three and pleasing on the eyes
But beauty is so quick to fade the words of someone wise.

The former Rose of Koonwarra looks a bit overweight
The years went by so quickly time for her did not wait
Her husband he has left her for one younger than she
Some men are so unfaithful and lack in morality.

The former Rose of Koonwarra her once brown hair now gray
At least she is ageing gracefully not everyone is that way
Some use hair dyes and have face lifts, makeup she does not even wear
She is not proud like many are and people like her are rare.

The former Rose of Koonwarra she too has had her day
But nothing last forever and such is life they say
But at least she is ageing gracefully though her better days are gone
With her the happy memories of her younger years will live on.
