Benefits of age

No need to do assertiveness training
No need to become charismatic, thin,stylish, eat what you hate,
You can pretend you can’t see someone and they will asume you are blind not rude
Similarly, pretend to be deaf as and when
Be polite to the poor and rude to the rich, who will assume it is dementia not rage
Give away all but one pair your shoes… my husband did this, how I never discovered
Ditto with clothes
No need to use antiperspirent any more, if you ever have done
Pretend you are not English.Maybe you aren’t
Stop watching the News and look at the night sky instead
Doze all day and sleep all night every few weeks
Do take up Art as even if it’s awful, people will still be amazed that you are learning it
Ditto with writing Poetry
However do not buy a violin or your neighbours will kill you

The Lune runs like old tears

I breath as softly as a little bird
Like the robin in the glade in Arnside Wood
Quick yet calm, who for some food would dare.

The view from Arnside Knot is  broad and fair
The atmosphere is  pure, we see trains chug
The Estuary of the Kent will never bore

Further South the Lune runs like  old tears
Morecambe Bay endangers, how it floods
Behind the Pennines rise,   the edges  fierce

Dent is ancient, mobile phones won’t dare
To penetrate  the  music of  its blood
Nor bring   their tones to hurt the mad March hare

Hutton Roof , cathedral, how we stared
A gentle hand caressed my heart to good
Meek flowers grew in the cracks  as safe,as  pure

How my heart expands  and I am glad
For mourning heals and  I am no more sad
I breath as softly as a little bird
I tiptoe on the path  the peace is shared
