The Day that Changed My Life

A poem by Epsom & Ewell u3a member Jan

The day that changed my life!

A walk in the woods
Changed my life one day
By a talk with a stranger
Who mentioned the u3a

I took up Spanish
Because I read its good for the brain
To learn a new language
You can say that again!

But I really enjoy it
And will keep having a go
Until I can speak really good Spanish
And in the language they know

I also go singing
And I may never have done
If it wasn’t for this meeting
And it really is fun

When looking for something
In your spare time to do
There is an endless choice
To learn something new

But what I love best
Since joining the u3a
Are friends that I have made
Along the way

Until a walk in the woods
I had never heard of the u3a
But a talk with a stranger
Changed my life that day
