Morning Stroll

I took a morning stroll today
Peering happily at the stormy gray
Armed to the hilt
From the USA
But probably made in China

Favorite comfy sweater
Blarney Woolen Mills
Made in Ireland
That I inherited so long ago
In another life
From people I used to know

It has travelled
A very long way
Bought in the land
Where Leprechauns play
Put in a suitcase
To Califor-nigh-yay
Then to the Philippines
Where I'm sure it will not stay

That old girl
Still has some mileage left
She's ready and willing
To give the world
A twirl

Now if only my body
Didn't creak so loudly
As I moved it along
I'd show her
That this little gal
Is still going strong
