Don’t Rattle My Cage

Don’t rattle my cage,
The sun is out.
Grown-up kids my age
Still love spring, no doubt.

Don’t rattle my cage,
The earth is shining!
No longer in a quiet rage,
For winter I’m not pining.

Don’t rattle my cage,
The cat is sunning,
And I’m enjoying this page.
No need to take off running.

Don’t rattle my cage, please,
My temper has short range.
Yearning for return of ease
With body adjusted to time’s change.

Retired after 33 years of teaching English and French (one year in private school in Memphis, TN and the rest in public school in Doniphan, MO. Enjoying new adventures - all those things I put off for lack of time, energy, now I can try them! Pottery, writing, traveling, camping, kayaking, dancing, listening to some of the best live music ever, and making passionate, lively new friendships. All christened with an appreciation for great red wine! Created and operated KC's on the Current, then sold it and managed it for new owners. Now totally retired and looking for my summers to be full of fun as well! Born and raised in St. Louis, MO
