Silly Heart

Many, many years ago, I purchased a Hallmark greeting card for which I finally got a frame, because I fell in love with the poem inside and always want to be able to look at it to cheer myself up:

I just love the photo of the happy, white-haired lady and hope that can be me some day!

I want to have a silly heart
when I grow old someday
a heart that still does somersaults
and runs outside to play

a heart that won't forget to dream
and can't remember facts
and thinks of birthday candles
as just sticks of wicks and wax

I want a heart that's been around
and knows a thing or two
but still can laugh
I want to have
a silly heart
don't you?


  1. Oh my goodness Doris - that is the heart I want to end up with too. What a great card that is - I see why you framed it. sandie

  2. I'm with you, Doris!! I LOVE the pictures on the card and the poem!!!

  3. oh that is lovely and like a Red Hatter.... :) great poem..
