Not Only Wise But Savvy

In fifteen minutes she’d reformatted and sent

the spread sheet of guests 

her daughter had asked her to send

when she learned

she couldn’t open the original.

How lucky this daughter was

that at ninety years old

her mom was computer savvy

and luckier still, she said

in her birthday toast,

to have been raised by a mom

who always loved learning

 and was living and loving and learning still.


     (For Mary Lee Allen, remarkable for far more than her computer skills, on her 90th birthday.)
