Old Wifes Riddles
Old wifes tales are a mystery
by sylvia spencer
which started way back in history.
If I wore a dress with a dropped hemline
then mother would say 'A Stich in Time Saves Nine!
We each had a jar on one of the kitchen shelves
as the money went in Mum would say'Look After The
Pennies and the Pounds Take Care of Themselves.
I hope you have enjoyed my old wifes riddle because
There's Been Many a GoodTune Played on an Old Fiddle;
but dont ask for an encore, I am forty and a score.
