The Old Folk

Children grown and flown

Mum and Dad together

Final years

She tends to her garden

Vegetables and flowers

He tends to his horses

Studies them for hours


A quiet bungalow

Happy days

Mum on kitchen guard duty

Dad a window gaze

No doubt they talked betimes

And reminisced

No doubt a gentle smile

A gentle kiss


Quiet in his chair

My father sat

A quiet man with quiet thoughts

I wonder where he’s at

And mammy too

A great one for her prayer

Holy people both

Our life their care
