I’m having another birthday soon. So being nostalgic.
Wearing sack dresses and platform shoes
Reading Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew
Singing “How Much is That Doggie in the Window”
Seeing Lassie fight bears and leave them in limbo.
Newspaper Headlines tout success
“Man on Moon” – nearly weightless!
Watching comedy that was witty
Walking barefoot and feeling pretty
Family-safe TV without vulgarity
And man’s word was a guarantee
Playing games and being a winner
Having fried chicken for Sunday dinner
So much living has gone by
I’ve loved and been loved,
But with a sigh,
I’m feeling bittersweet.
