Still At Her Sill

She said flowers just attract bees
And flung them "where they fly".
She told me running hurts your knees
As two grayed gents jogged by.
She said biking was for young things,
Not folks who lost their poise.
She told me throats hurt when one sings,
And yard work is for boys.
She said hiking is perilous -
One might roll down a hill.
She sat her whole life querulous
'Bout all seen from her sill.
