The Old Lady In Town!
written by Katy Durnford 08-04-2018
Fish are caught in the bay
the cafes are doing good
children play on the sand
whilst the lady wears the hood
she walks along with her cane
in the left hand, sees the game
so collides with a cup of tea
by the benches at the sea
her trousers are denim and a woolly top
she stops by the fudge shop
carrying her bags on her right arm
buying produce from the local farm
so she gathers her bags in the street
awaiting her friends, who she is to meet
whilst eyeing the gulls in the sky
moving out the way for passers by
In her bags is food for supper
she walks in the uppers
the sounds of the day ring in her ears
laden with bags, the poor dear!
So she awaists by the cafe
in her denims and wollie tops
they meet and have a coffee
before going round the shops!
She chats to her friends
one is on the mend
after having the flu!
will she come by you?
The end of the day comes now
she pays the bill for the drinks
one needs to go home to feed the sow
whilst the other needs to wash dishes in the sink!
she goes home and puts the shopping away
puts on the oven, whilst farmers lay hay
in the basket are apples and pears
she needs a rest now after the days wear!
