Two Elderly Ladies - Poem by Mick Lines

Sitting under some Mdoni trees awaiting lunch when,
Out of the corner of my eye
I saw two elderly Ladies approach
Who glanced around……paused, and sat nearby…..

They were no longer lithe, straight or supple
And, sitting, fearing a fall perhaps, was careful
But, being true Ladies…..artful and sublime
sitting was feminine, sure and graceful

As they talked their eyes grew bright!
At times they would giggle…. Like young girls
In conspiratorial delight

They bore grace and elegance once associated with generations gone…
The more they smiled the more their youthful beauty shone
That youthful splendor became a glow!
and in their faces warmly grew
An echo back to their Halcyon days
In a world of refinement that flourished strong and true

    lol I was dreading reading this Mick! lol but was delighted I did. Yes! seeing people happy and reminicing on good times, is sure to dropp the years. I really liked your treatment of these senior beauties. That grace and elegance can never truly be gone...It just needs nurturing back to fashion.

    Smiling at you
