Which Point of View is it?

1. Though I am eighty years old, I still love climbing that hill. My knees hurt as I make my way up to those old pine trees. Families of cardinals have lived in those pine trees for decades. I go there each morning to listen to the family of those lovely red birds sing their songs.

2. Every morning, just after the sun rose, the eighty year old woman would climb up the hill. Though through the years her knees hurt and the climb became more difficult, she made her way to the pine trees to where a family of birds lived. The woman loved those cardinals, their red color and the songs they sang. It was music to the woman’s ears.

3. Every morning, just after the sun rose, the eighty year old woman would climb up the hill. Though through the years, her knees hurt and the climb became more difficult, she would make her way to the pine trees to where a family of birds lived. The woman did this each and every morning looking forward to taking in the fresh morning air and looking at the brightly colored feathers of the cardinals. The birds always welcomed her. They had grown use to the woman’s morning visits. The birds knew to look for the old woman just after the sun peaked over the horizon.  As soon as the cardinals saw the old woman, the birds would all begin to chirp in chorus creating a glorious harmony of song. How the cardinals enjoyed greeting the woman every day making music for their old friend.

4.  Every morning, just after the sun rose, you would climb up the hill. Though through the years your knees hurt and the climb became more difficult, you made your way to the pine trees where a family of birds lived.  Each and every morning, you climbed this hill, decade after decade, just to take in the fresh air and to hear the birds sing. You loved those cardinals, their bright red feathers and the songs they sang. It was music to your ears.
