Frail – #inktober2019

Frail

Frail

Frail is today’s Inktober Prompt – so I’ve sketched a gentle elderly couple. I have also quickly jotted down a sketchy rhymey (sort of) verse to illustrate the picture – not the greatest poem I have to admit, but anyway, this is a drawing challenge! (poem needs more work on but hey, let’s get it out there!)

When I am old and frail

Will you take my arm

alongside, my dear?

To keep me near

beside you, here.

And stay up close

In juxtapose

doddering along the trail.

Lesley Scoble

If anyone out there feels they could (politely) improve upon the poem, I shall be more than delighted to listen to any (polite) suggestions! 🙂
