Now We Are Sixty

When I was One,

I had just begun.

When I was Twenty,

I joined the cognoscenti.

When I was Thirty,

I was skinny and flirty.

When I was Forty,

I was athletic and sporty.

When I was Fifty,

I was conscientious and thrifty.

But now in my Sixties, I’m as clever as clever.

So I think I’ll be sixty for ever and ever.

(With apologies to A.A. Milne)

Fun then, appropriate now.

Fun then, appropriate now.

  1. Feeling the need to write things down when we reach a “certain” age is quite normal it would seem.
    It signifies the urge to leave something of yourself behind. Could be the fear of extinction even.
