Set of four art cards - each design has been faithfully reproduced from one of my watercolour studies from my very popular paintings of real women enjoying the water.and friendship .These cards include the poems one on each card
Three friends are we ,older and wiser?
Our hair has gone grey , and our waists have got wider.
We no longer spend nights thinking about teenage crushes
Now it’s mood swings that plague us and lots of hot flushes.
But our swimsuits are bright and together we swim
Enjoying our friendship and the skin that we’re in.
Two good friends went for a swim
The one who was fat wished she was thin
The slim one envied her friends lovely shape
The jokes that she told and the stuff she could make
But they both felt comfortable just being together
So throw on your swimsuit , if your fat or your thin
Have fun with your bestie, love the skin that you’re in
We are women of a certain age and we have done a lot of stuff
We are mums and wives and workers, sometimes it was tough
Our bodies have been altered by the ravishes of time
Sometimes when I look down on it, I’m not even sure it’s mine.
We are warriors with cellulite, we may wobble but we’re strong
We are women of a certain age and our struggle is life long!
Three good friends went for a swim,
the one who was fat wished she was thin.
The one she was curvy wished she was clever.
The one who was clever wished she swam better.
The really great swimmer wished she was witty
The one who was witty wished she was pretty
All three friends thought the other's were fine
They need to let their own bright light shine
So throw on your swimsuit ,if you're fat or you're thin
Enjoy fun and friendship .... love the skin that you're in
