My lovely Muse

My Lovely Muse By Rick Rucker My Heart skips at her Kiss, A feeling I would, not willingly, miss, To even hear her, on the phone, I, no longer, am alone, When we can meet, I marvel that there is one so sweet, She is practical, not like me, And, yet, she has a Spirit, free, If I propose something out in Left Field, To my suggestion, she will often yield, She might look at me askance, But, she will give me a chance, To make my case for a change, To, our calendar, rearrange, And to try an action so very new, That neither of us knows how to do, She says she wants to live forever, Constant adventure, ending never, I doubt that will come to pass, But I will take every moment that I can, with this Lass, My World, she does rock, She has turned back my body’s clock, In years, I am sixty five, And I have never felt so alive! You might be thinking that she is half my age, A difference that seems all the rage, But, she is, in years, my equal, And, I sense, I shall not need a sequel, I do not know what I did so well, That Heaven should send me this belle, As long as permitted, I shall use, This extraordinary beauty, My Lovely Muse.

    This is wonderful. I am so glad to know that there are seniors still falling in love. I wish the two of you the very very best. I am in your age group. TLee

    Terry, please excuse the tardy reply. My Lovely Muse strips away the years, merely by being near. She has given me the gift of Semi-Eternal Youth! Rick
