AUNT PENELOPE

 She could do such unusual things without much

 Out of bottle caps she could make a crazy hat.

 She could jump really high, almost fly,

 Close her eyes and make an apple pie.

 She could walk backwards while tying her shoes,

 Dance around a pool while reading a book.

 She could play the harp without her hands,

 Tell you the time in just about any land.

 She could watch a movie without a sound,

 Recite every line while spinning around.

 Aunt Penelope was a strange one indeed,

 At the age of one hundred and fifty three,

 Old aunt Penelope is still but a fantasy.
