What is it?

Words in motion; gathered from the day

Tribute to Jenny Joseph

Jenny - I got your 'Warning'
I saw her today.
                           In a winter, woollen coat of richest purple 
and a red Sunday best hat that didn't go.
                           A yellow daffodil pinned in her left lapel 
and a sailor's gait to her walk.
                             A picked-up stick for rattling railings, 

alongside - a white bull terrier that surely loves sausages
                             and a no-nonsense twinkle in her eye 
    that said - with a smile.
'Now I am old.'

(but sorry - no photo)
