Pencil vs Poodle

Were you a Pencil or a Poodle

Skirt fan, back in the days of rockn’roll?

Dancing slow with The Diamonds

Strolling in a pencil skirt,

Or swing’n the poodle skirt

Jitterbugging with

Bill Haley in your

Saddle shoes,

When teens

Reliving the 50’s and 60’s

50's and 60's my generation--Shadorma poem
Original Poetry by Leona J. Atkinson Photograph by Victoria Noelle Marcin ©2016

In my generation during high school (1959-1962) I had a grey poodle skirt with a pink poodle on it, a pink angora sweater, bobby socks, saddle shoes and a pony tail.  My grand-daughter in this picture was dressed for a “50’s Day” at her high-school.  She loves the 50’s and 60’s music and is a great Elvis fan. She has a large Elvis collection and plays his vinyl records on a small record player I gave her for Christmas a couple years ago. Since I grew up in that generation, and of course was an Elvis fan, she and I visited Graceland together last year and had a fabulous time! I got to stand at the Graceland Gates like I had always wanted to do!
