WAITING

She prefers Tinker Toys to

Legos and logs, and devours

hours on her Jigsaw puzzles.

To what end?

 

She will not die with her boots

On, sad to say.  Tho she rejects

Meals on Wheels–she’s not that old!

Just marking time.

 

Time when sleepy, time when bored.

Time taking out hearing aids

To talk on the phone.  Oooh, she

Knows she  retired much too soon!

 

A coupla friends come and go

Tip toeing out to let her sleep

She needs batteries for the clock,

Now aint that a hoot.

 

She’s happy to be awaiting

Newly bought books, one being

Last words of the Executed, a second

What Is Time?  She’ll let us know.

 

For now she’s content to pout

That she’s lived so long poor thing,

Rising now to write a poem,

cheered while waiting for the

 

books to come.
