Linda's 70th Birthday

Once it was that three score ten

Was Man’s allotted span

Yet Linda still defies the clock

And scorns the Phyllosan

She nursed at London Hammersmith

Then midwife was her calling

Before Fiona came along

With nappies and some bawling

She takes to water like a duck

And swims lengths at a stroke

She tends to grandson Callen

And cooks meals for her bloke

Wife, Mum and tireless Grandma

The roles she’s ably played

And once upon a time she was

My first and last bridesmaid.
