Encounter with the gods
I'm no longer steady on my feet for they do not remember our life long past.
Oops! Here I go again the pavement welcomes me like an old friend as I stumble on the sidewalk pavers.
Where has that man gone who played sport like crazy and reveled in running distance races or more to the point where those willing legs?
Age wearies me as I totter around watchful of errant ants lest I trip over them as I shuffle along.
So what do we have when we are old and Hebe the Greek goddess of youth no longer looks on us?
Oh yes, I wrote myself a memo about her the other day but seem to have lost it now...yes, here it is, it's Mnemosyne the little known Greek goddess of memory; I wonder why I keep forgetting that, I'll have to write myself a memo.
