Past Her Prime

A poetess well past her prime
Had some trouble when writing a rhyme.
Her limericks lagged
And her readership sagged
You could say it was really a …tragedy!

    Ilene this is a lovely limerick. Tragic when a creative mind of a writer, artists, poet has lost the words, images, and thoughts to old age. Warm Smiles, Connie
