An Old Couple

An old couple sits facing west Having a picnic, they are blessed They overlook a short, small stream They each have some frozen ice-cream To jump in the stream is their test Daring to wade, they surely jest Bugs do bite them, a real life pest His heart’s hers, to always redeem An old couple They enjoy the view, just the best He would get something off his chest Marriage proposal, he did beam Romance sure ran wild, it did seem They saw the sunset facing west An old couple
