The Marvellous Old Sagess - Poem by Francis Duggan

Her wisdom is with me from decades ago
The marvellous old sagess that i used to know
The wisdom she imparted with me does remain
And in my flights of fancy she is living again
With the long departed she forever does lay
But i still can recall the wise things she did say
A role model of my childhood one i did admire
Her insights and wisdom others did inspire
She is not remembered in the big World out there
But people like her are and were always rare
Honest, down to earth and so wise and so kind
Her equals to say the least would be hard to find
Since she breathed her last many Seasons have gone
But in the memories of those who did know her she is living on.
