Comments about Marjorie DeBol DeFazio
In The Eighth Decade*
*Birth to 10 is the first decade
Whiskers are growing from my chin
My hair is receding, growing thin
I thought these were the province of men
Equality is marching much too far
I expected laugh and frown lines
Would turn to wrinkles
But whiskers on my chin
Receding hair graying, going thin?
Bending seems a chore
Running even more
Swimming is nice
Breakfast adds to waist and life
Bicycle tires need air
Kayak is suspended near the door
Two canoes and the paddles hang in the rafters
Skis come down for use next week
