No 85 June 10
For those who just donít know,
Iíve not danced for a while,
I just sit there feeling envious,
And try to raise a smile.
Just to have to sit there,
Is harder than you think,
If I was that way inclined,
It could turn me to drink.
I had a new knee 3 years ago,
Itís worse than it was before,
My bad back Iíve had for 40 years,
Just doesnít work no more.
Where we live thereís lots of hills,
To take a walk is hard,
But we both need the exercise,
Thatís something we canít discard.
Weíve found a route, about a mile,
The first half all downhill,
But then to get back home again,
Iíll tell you, itís no thrill.
The first time that we did it,
I needed to use my sticks,
Weíve done this for a fortnight now,
And at last Iíve got my kicks.
The last 2 days weíve done it,
No sticks, just determination,
I feel that Iíve achieved something,
And all through isolation.
So if weíre still stuck in a while,
And we try to walk some more,
You never know, the day may come,
When Iím back on the dance floor
