Here's Alison: The Merry Widow

Old Charlie is no more. Died of a heart attack. But in this poem by Alison Ross the Merry Widow is not in mourning.

Charlie got double pneumonia.
Then, died of a heart attack...
After they’d been married for thirty-six years;
So she packed all his things
For the Salvation Army,
And handled it all, without tears.

While living with her daughter,
Some two months after the event,
She said, she’d never had so much fun,
And wondered,
Where the two months went?
