A Senior Poet’s Enticement
 

It is a normal thing for me to do

As a Senior, to give to my community— to you!

 

As a compassionate Good Samaritan I try

To present my insights, my experience—and why?

 

My poetry, stories and songs inform and connect

With language being concrete and direct.

 

At times I strive to give my knowledge and intuition

Only to meet obstacles, or be frustrated by opposition.

 

Such harsh moments I live through and shrug away.

History’s taught me there will be another good day!
