From my brother Ted

When you were ten
You were funny then.

When you were twenty
Your charms were plenty.

When you were thirty
Your faith grew sturdy.

When you were forty
you were still a shorty.

When you were fifty
You were kind of nifty.

When you were sixty–
A delightful pixie!

But now that you’re seventy
I can’t find a rhyme,
But you know that I’ve loved you
All of this time.

Thanks, Ted!
