Paper on lap a tired gray-haired gentleman folds his specs,
canopy handy when 32 C visits your trailer porch, flowerpots
sprinkle the small lot, Impatiens and Gladiolas colouring the
view, Muffins asleep, Ida staring from the sofa - Alzheimer's
taking root, from the next trailer children singing new verses
of "Old MacDonald's Farm," a knowing smile warming his
crinkled face, canoeing memories, long walks with his wife, a
good life with family grown older and his old lawn sign still
reminding 'WELCOME TO ALL' from Ida, John and Muffins.
