Mail Call

By Henry Lowenstern

Our mailman comes once every day
with catalogs and bills to pay,
Or, even better,
a personal letter
from a grandchild far away,
in L. A., Marseilles, or Mumbai.


[INVITATION: All elders, 50 and older, are welcome to submit stories for this blog. They can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir, etc. Please read instructions for submitting.]

Very nice..I think as Elders we are like old time Army folks, who waited for mail call...those are some exotic locales of grandchildren, my crew are in East Harlem, NYC, Fayetteville, NC., Michigan about to relocate to Boston for Grad School..I thought about putting them into a rhyme, but decided quickly against it...Catalogs are a whole other hobby, aren't they?
