Retired One Year

by Cheryl Merrick

Seeing retired people
as people who spend
their entire day playing golf,
or wandering the world,
I'm surprised that after
 our first year of retirement,
we remain clubless
 and travelless.

It is wonderful to finally retire
from the constant strain
 of earning a living
and raising children.

At last we have the time,
energy and resources
to devote ourselves
to tending a grandchild,
family history, landscaping
supporting our family,
and helping our neighbors
by sharing our knowledge
 and skills.

Happily we have retired
from job pressure,
and retired to serving others.
