Ode to the Howes House
Aging’s not the bed of roses
Everyone who’s young supposes;
Quicker than one might expect,
The years and eons take effect –
But what a huge relief to know
There’s somewhere special you can go!
The Howes House plays a special part
In many things, and here’s a start:
It’s friendly people on the phone
Reminding you you’re not alone;
It’s someone who can ease the stress
Of dealing with the IRS;
It’s days made brighter with a smidge
Of yoga, bellydance or bridge –
And nothing quite dispels the blues
Like lunch with friends, exchanging news!
Before you know it, saint or cynic,
You could use the Wellness Clinic;
Even with your brand-new hip,
Enjoy a Falmouth shopping trip.
No medicine in spoon or cup
Can keep the years from adding up
But luck us, we’re proud to say,
The Howes house isn’t far away!
