Still Hiking after all These Years
(to the tune of "Still Crazy After All These Years" by Paul Simon)
by Wynne Gillis on her Burlap Birthday
I met my old buddies on the trail today
They seemed so glad to see me, I just smiled,
So we talked about some old times
And gave ourselves some cheers--
Still hiking after all these years.
I'm not the kind of gal who likes to try what's new,
I seem to cling to old familiar ways
But all credit to the BWAG's for overcoming fears,
Still skiing after all these years.
And then running down them
Pass winter days away,
I sometimes worry,
But why should I?
It's all gonna pass....
So I lace up my spring boots
And watch the miles go by,
I know they'll do me damage one fine day,
But I'm happy for the honors from a covey of my peers--
Still hiking after all these years!
