I'M NOT OLD, I'M NOT OLD
by Maude Curtis
My Grandson is getting married today.
BUT I'M NOT OLD! I'M NOT OLD!
I still feel like a kid and want to play,
AND I'M NOT OLD! I'M NOT OLD!
I've nothing to wear. Should it be Red,
Bright Blue or Basic Black?
"Wear whatever you want Mimi" he said.
Just wish I could sit in the back.
If I wear Red. I'll look like an old woman
trying to be young, but, I'M NOT OLD!
Bright Blue? I'll look like a overripe plum.
Basic Black it'll be, BUT I'M NOT OLD!
So wish me luck, that I don't trip
and I can walk so my limp won't show bold.
"Granny of the Groom, get a grip".
YOU'RE NOT OLD! YOU'RE NOT OLD!
Have I convinced you yet?
Yea, Me neither.
Author's Note: Wedding Day jitters from MIMI.

Congratulations Mimi! LOL
I'm not old either. This is one great poem from one granny to another. My oldest grandson is just four but basic black it is just for a Nana too. Straight into my favorites, MiMi Maude!

Awwww, the heart and soul of us stays at that ideal age, while gravity and the body and time passing force us to face aging. I'm right here with you, Maude, and I love your heart!!!

Never let letters combined in ugly ways get to you....what we are inside can never be spelled so simply! A poem we all echo!
