    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Sixty-five, oh what an age, ripe as a vintage wine,
    Now a part of the sage crowd, though still feeling fine.

  21. As A Senior
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    As a senior, oh the joy it brings,
    Deft cards dealt from life’s dealing rings.

    But forget what's in my to-do queue.

    Teeth in a jar, hair growing thin,
    Yet no more battles with the spin.
    Joints may creak, the memory blurs,
    Still dancing to that oldie My Way by Sinatras.

    Our memories grow like cherished vintage wine.
    Tread softly now upon this well-worn stage,
    Where seniors dwell, with stories to engage.
