"Ray et sa Mere"

His mere is 80 plus years!

"Up" on the farm, is no harm,

To her charm, nor fears

To those shears, that clear

Fields of thoughts & knots,

That clot lots for harvest!

But when cut & shorn,

Warm to haying & neighing,

For yet another season! -

To reason: Home, is where,

The scythe decides:

Age resides, in non-doing,

And nothing besides!

So, go Maman!  Shake your cane

And mane - As Ray is both stable & able!

A droit!  . . . La Fin!!

 

p.s. a droit = to the right!  & la fin = the end
