Artist's description:

Words from an old lady of 85

I am an old woman of 85;
I still have to work so hard to keep me survive;
May be that is God’s will
That I have to suffer till I die

I am an old woman of 85;
I begin my journey early before five;
Step by step I have to walk through 300 steps;
For I have to reach the mountain top before the sun shine.

I am an old woman of 85;
I am so happy today I can find a huge cage behind;
I begin to pick up all those dry woods and tree branches
For I have to leave the mountain before five.

I am an old woman of 85;
I am so happy with all these woods for I can earn a dine;
But, where is my tomorrow?
For I only know that I have to work and work till I die.
