JOSIE'S POEMS 

Retirement's arrived - they stop paying you brass.

 

Employment has gone and you're put out to grass.

 

Time on your hands?  Well, perhaps so to start.

 

Idle?  Try hobbies - writing or art?

 

Rest?  Not when grandchildren come on the scene.

 

Enjoy them?  Grandparenting's some people's dream.

 

Money?  Not likely - the tax man's out there!

 

Eat, drink and be happy - and let down your hair.

 

Never "old age" but "I'm still young inside." - - - And -

 

Try to take all of these years in your stride.

By Josie Whitehead
