TO ETHEL KELLY

written by VERA P

  

Subtle old lady in white knit hat,

With bright blue eyes and white hair.

You wore blue tennis shoes,

And walked away through the woods.

You walked away from your 85 years,

And walked away from all of us.

You did not want anybody

To see that you were dying.

Brave old lady from Mississippi,

You lived between trees and cotton fields,

And walked away from rules and orders.

Little old Southern lady,

You put on your bright clothes,

You walked away to die in the woods.

You walk forever, your blue eyes shining

In the ultra blue sky,

Your white hair is like white clouds,

You will walk forever

Toward immortality, yourself.
