My Grandmother's verses

My Wynne Grandmother was a big influence in my life. These lines, written I suppose as she looked forward to the end of her own long life - she died aged 92 - appear in my Father's little book, A Christian's Guide to Growing Old.
It's a short book, easy to read.
White hair growing thin,
Bright eyes growing dim,
Shoulders sagging,
Footsteps lagging.

A Pause—A Flash!

Eyes crystal clear,
Footsteps light as air,
Glad hands raised in joyous praise
Vindicating Heaven's ways—

E.C.A.W. 1873-1965
