Nonagenarian Musings

by June Sidran Mandlkern


I was born in 1924.

The great Israeli poet of the same vintage,

Yehuda Amichai, said it was a good year

What shall I do in my remaining years?

What truths can I realize, what footprints

will I leave upon the sands?


Forgive the cliche, it's time to move on.

In one short decade I will be 100.

Shall we make a date for dinner?

which restaurant should we go to?


Pick me up at 7:00.

Don't be late.
