To the Editor:
Twas’ somewhat of a hassle, frustration and fuss,
finding a place called “55-plus.”
We started our search, every option explored,
some were quite spendy; we quickly ignored.
Continued our search, mostly did it alone,
four to five years – we turned every stone.
Phone calls and visits, much thought and much prayer,
then finally we chose – a place called Lee Square.
Put house up for sale, made spotless and clean
amid the crisis of COVID-19.
We tried not to worry, be fearful, and panic,
buying and selling during a serious pandemic.
To neighbors we gave, leaf blower, snow blower,
some tools, no jewels, but yes – a lawn mower..
Donated to charity a lot of our stuff,
we had many things, much more than enough.
No raking, weed killing, no hot summer mowing,
no painting things, fixing things – bye bye to snow blowing.
We settled right in - me and my spouse,
no struggles and troubles maintaining a house.
It all came together, and it made good sense,
Lee Square in Robbinsdale - our new residence.
