Autumn When the trees their summer splendor Change to raiment red and gold, When the summer moon turns mellow, And the nights are getting cold; When the squirrels hide their acorns, And the woodchucks disappear; Then we know that it is autumn, Loveliest season of the year.

How do I know my youth is all spent? My get-up-and-go has got up and went. My joints are still and filled with pain. The pills that I take give me no gain. I rub in the ointment like fury I do. Each pain when it leaves comes back with two. But in spite of it all I am able to grin When I think of the places my get-up has been. Old age is GOLDEN I have heard it said, But sometimes I wonder as I get into bed- My "ears" on the dresser, my "teeth" in a cup, My "eyes" on the table until I wake up. Ere sleep comes each night I say to myself, "Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?" Yet I am happy to know as I close the door, My friends are the same as in days of yore. Since I have retired form life's competition Each day is filled with complete repetition. I get up every morning and dust off my wits Go pick up the paper and read the "o-bits." If my name isn't there I know I'm not dead; I get a good breakfast and go back to bed. The reason I know my youth is all spent- My get-up-and-go has got up and went. 1715 days ago
