Just a Silly Poem

Carol A. Hand

I’ve always been stylish
Wouldn’t you say?

Amik Lake 1991

Amik Lake 1991

Gotta love this old jacket
Still can’t throw it away
Twenty-five plus years later
stained and beginning to fray
it continues serving its purpose
keeping cold winds at bay

May this silly photo and rhyme
Bring laughter and brighten your day



About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

    I have a jacket from Seattle, Carol – that has to be 25 years old – still wear it. We’re a pair! ❤ this post.

    Such a lovely photograph. I too have some pieces of clothing that I keep for decades 🙂 My daughter used to wear a jumper that I bought in 1972 🙂 She still keeps it in her family history storage 🙂

  3. I love it! And you likely have no idea how it cheers my heart to see the esteemed Carol Hand also writing nonsense poems. I was truly starting to feel lonely!

    • Thank you for sharing your lovely comments, Maria. I agree. Old things that have served their purpose over the years do carry memories. I love the feel of old clothes that have become softer and more flexible.
