(An Acrostic Poem)

Retirement People Poems Reflective/Thinking Poems Acrostic Poetry Skype Visits


Retirement's arrived - they stop paying you brass.


Employment has gone and you're put out to grass.


Time on your hands?  Well, perhaps so to start.


Idle?  Try hobbies - writing or art?


Rest?  Not when grandchildren come on the scene.


Enjoy them?  Grandparenting's some people's dream.


Money?  Not likely - the tax man's out there!


Eat, drink and be happy - and let down your hair.


Never 'old age' but "I'm still young inside." - - - And -


Try to take all of these years in your stride.
