My Thoughts and Me

Sitting in the shade of the old olive tree
Me some wine my thoughts and me
Reflecting on the way things be
Me some wine my thoughts and me.

The swing seat swayed by gentle breeze
Rocking my wine my thoughts and me
Hazy lazy times are these
Rocking my wine my thoughts and me.

I’m hundreds of years younger than thee
With some wine my thoughts and me
Beneath your out spread branches I be
With some wine my thoughts and me.

Young green olives I look up to see
I some wine my thoughts and me
Soon black they’ll turn more work there’ll be
I some wine my thoughts and me.

Wonderful juice from this fruit there will appear
Accompanying some wine my thoughts and me
Over fresh bread with tomatoes for tea
Accompanying some wine my thoughts and me.

So I’ll just sit here let my mind roam free
Peaceful some wine my thoughts and me
How happy I am to be at home
Peaceful some wine my thoughts and me.

A calling voice my name that’s me
Relaxing some wine my thoughts and me
Come on sweetie it’s time for tea
Relaxing some wine my thoughts and me.

Happy Times

The wind in the sails sun glares off the sea

I’m sailing the channel feeling free

I don’t have to rush no work for me

I’m on my boat, I’m retired you see.

——————–

The trees need pruning to provide a crop

The pruned branches for fire wood I’ll chop

But not in the sun, it’s far to hot

On my farm in the forest I am free

I’m retired you see.

——————–

Watching the birds in the trees is fine

Sitting in this chair of mine

Cool glass of something in my hand

At peace, at home, this is me

I’m retired you see.

——————–

My writing set out on my desk

In shady gazebo here I wrest

With plots and characters all is fine

Laptop’s ready but not me

I’m retired you see.

———————–

But now it’s 3.30 and I am off

Down to the river don’t you scoff

The petanca courts are calling me

My friends await we all are free

We’re all retired you see.

———————-

We are young at heart and in our minds

We really do enjoy our time

O.A.P’s we all might be

But you’ll not find us lacking oh no not we

We’re all retired you see.

———————-

Life is not just for the young

We can now relax and have some fun

Oh happy band of peeps are we

Long may we be so me and thee

We are all retired you see.
