Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in time, when this blog went by a different name using the old Misty Look theme (well, July 2011, but considering this blog only started in 2010 it’s almost as waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back as one can go!) I posted this as I had a particularly bad knee that day.

I haven’t got a bad knee today, but thought it would be nice to dust the cobwebs off this old post and send it out into the wide weird web once again.

For those who may be interested, I think the rhyme worked as I don’t remember the knee aching since. Everywhere else, yes, but not the knee…

I proudly present “Ode to an aching knee

Oh, knee, I ask thee why must thou throb
Whence I stand and walk or hobble
’Tis fine whilst seated and after several steps
So why must thou caust me trouble?

A heat you bring within my leg
A warmth that’s not so fair
Whence I happen perchance to walk
A steppe or two from here to over there

I ask thee knee, nay I beg of thee,
To help me on my way
I have no need for thee to throb,
So take thy pain away.

Oh, knee, kind knee, strong knee of mine,
I’m grateful for thy support
You’re part of me so you must know
The pain that brought these thoughts

My mind it says the pain has gone
My mind says this is true
My body agrees and all is well
Apart from the throb from you.

      Elaine, I haven’t aged a day since I was 24. Sometimes, I too think I’m young… and other days I feel much older than I probably should be. 😀
      And thank you. (It’s the creating that keeps me young, don’t you know. Well that, and the Elixir of Youth I have stashed in a bottle under the sink in the Kitchen!)
