1. Tomorrow is my mother's 60th birthday: 16:30
By Jenny Joseph
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other people's gardens . . .
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
If I am to grow old, let me grow old like my mother. The wrinkles on her face are the laugh-lines of a life well-lived. I want to grow old like her, in the company of friends and the warmth of love.
But if I am to grow old like my mother, I will never grow old, only more alive.
