I think women will know where I'm coming from....

IN THE PARK, LOOKING…
            (Barbara Giles)

I'm not too old to like the shape of a man,

his walk, the set of his head on his shoulders,

the strong legs, well fleshed, and that bright

dark browed glance. There's a nose that I like,

admiring, blank faced. If you should

see me looking, if you saw me at all,

you'd think I'm reminded of someone,

husband, son, grandson, not that I look at you

as a woman looks at a man who stirs her.


The heart lifts, it's good to see a fine man,

to think - there goes a man I could love.

I'm looking at you, not remembering.

But as I well know, you don't see me,

old women are almost invisible. If I do catch your eye,

likely enough you'll be thinking,

'She has a look of my mother.'
