Final Performance

by Bette A. Stevens © 8/29/2012

While asters, purple tutus donned

With velvet yellow crowns

Ballet to cricket violins,

Sway tiptoe in their gowns;

A golden orb in treetops rests

The stage a soft pale blue

And I among their audience

Too soon must say, “Adieu!”

In Poetic Form…

Originally posted on 20 Lines A Day:

I’m waiting for the lady that runs by

She’s always in her running shorts and top

She runs to where the purple asters lie

And then she has a breather and some pop.

She’ll go and catch her death of cold you know

‘Cos she runs every day, come rain or sun.

There’s some days when she didn’t ought to go

And others when it can’t be that much fun.

I’ve knitted her a little woolly vest

In stripes of pink and blue and white and green

I’ll take it over when she has her rest,

The gayest little jumper you have seen.

If she says ‘No’ and wrinkles up her nose,

I think she’ll soon be turning up her toes.
