11. Old Lady

Everyday she sits there,
near the window
with her knitting needles and yarn.
An old lady she is,
who lives with six cats
and no one else.

She smiles at strangers who pass by,
give away candies and cookies
to kids running around,
listens to neighbors complaints.
She knows everyone
and everything
in and around the village.

She knits sweaters for the cats
and gives them yarn balls.
An old lady she is
and has always been old
as long as anyone can remember.
