SISTER-IN-LAW CATHY

SISTER-IN-LAW  CATHY

Sister-in-law  Cathy–

A grand smart girl–

Came down from the mountains

To give life a whirl;

She married Di’s brother

And faithful remained,

Brought up their children

And good character gained…

We miss her and love her

And wish we could be

A few hours’ closer

For Diana and me!

–Jonathan Caswell

MARATHON MAN

MARATHON MAN

He’s gone and lost another toe,

Which lengthens his world of woe…

Sitting quite still

Takes much will,

There are things to be done, ya know!

Months of one foot elevated

Are extended by another amputated…

The older wound stitched,

No longer bewitched

By evening nurses anticipated.

(nurses coming only once-a-day now)

Determined to not fool around,

He wants to work again sound…

He’ll do what it takes

To avoid sugar cakes

And keep his blood sugar down!

–Jonathan Caswell
