Mildred, aged 92, 
brought her Spiral 
notebook to the writing workshop 
today; the first date was 1956,
health records
of her children.
She wrote a few lines
about her life
inspiring all of us to live our lives
and be content,
then, slowly, gently,
picked up her cane, 
wrapped her arm in mine, 
walked to the door,
and drove home, in her own car,
twenty miles on highway 30.
