A Boomer Poem, inspired by Summer Lovin’ - Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta/Grease
We’re right-sizing, having a blast
Found our dream home – happened so fast
Single story, lawn maintenance-free
And the floor plan’s perfect for me
I taste the morning coffee – an inspirational thing.
Winter dawn colorful one day, gray the next
In Georgia, where weather’s mercurial nature
Led us to invent “dressing in layers”
An assortment of coats, sweaters, scarves
Gloves for good measure
A Boomer Poem (with bonus holiday information & links)
We gather together online for Thanksgiving
A screen shot of family this year we’ll employ,
It’s par for the course in this year we are living
Still turkey and dressing and pie we’ll enjoy.
A Boomer Poem, inspired by “To Autumn,” by John Keats
Our season of crisp air and apple festivals,
Nature changes from hues of green to gold;
Leaf-peeping to fully enjoy the season that is Fall,
Trees embrace the last hurrah, and prepare for cold.
(inspired by “Our Little Town,” by Simon & Garfunkel, 1970)
In our neighborhood
We find comfort in knowing
We have so much life in common
And we can lean on each other
In joy and pain and through it all
We chose each other, after all.
A Boomer Poem, inspired by “Two of Us” (“On Our Way Home”), by The Beatles (1970)
The two of us looking always, never finding
the right place
One day we were out driving, suddenly smiling
We found it: OUR HOME!
We found our new home
This is our new home
We’re moving home
