She asks me which is better:

The red or the orange scarf

An endearing smile of

grace and beauty

curved over sixty years

She doesn’t need a scarf

and my stranger opinion doesn’t matter

Her bony hands have delivered large loads

Good friends came and went

She knows feuds have no gain

and that the sun sets

on all things laughed and cried over

So she honours her heartbeat

with an orange scarf

And gives me a broad second smile
