Poetic Thursday: Never Too Old

Thursday has come once again, and with that, poetry over at Two Spoiled Cats. Pam and her boys, Teddy and Angel Sammy, provided us with this fun photo for this week’s inspiration.

And here is my poem:

Never Too Old

Just look at these two, Ethel and Dan;
they like to have fun whenever they can.

Ethel bought a skateboard and wanted to learn;
Dan gladly helped her while waiting his turn.

A skateboard lesson out in the dirt?
Guess it cushions a fall and lessens the hurt.

Dan shook his head and said: “Ethel! Really?
You’re just not ready to pop a wheelie!”

Good for you, Ethel, you’re never too old;
maybe one day, we’ll watch you go for the gold.

~These Days Of Mine~
