Seniors & Aging

Bellingham poet Ann Carlson asks “What is Old?”

"What Is Old?"

When I was 15

I thought 30 was old.

How can you have any fun

When you are so very old?

When I was 30

I thought 50 was old.

What is there left to achieve

When you are so very old?

When I was 50

I thought 70 was old.

What is there to look forward to

When you are so very old?

Now I am in my mid 70s

Having fun, achieving new goals

looking forward to every moment

And am NOT so very old!

Ann Carlson,

Bellingham
