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.

                        Keith Garrett
