Perennial Youth



Oh the days of summer will soon be upon us To warm us and fill us with joy Those bright sunny days and cool starlit nights So sweetly our spirits they buoy Gone through a bunch of these halcyon days At my age I should be blasé No matter the number each one's still a joy Like my very first summer's day What wonders this dear old world still creates Each year after year without fail The predictors of doom keep warning us guys But still a new summer we hail So now that I've reached my senior years I've come to realize a truth With many triumphs and some sad events Life shares a perennial youth © Jack Ellison 2013

    Sorry I have been a bit lax lately in reading OPP (other people's poem) In the midst of selling our house which is taking up a bunch of time. I will be getting back to normal soon... bear with me! Thanks for the good word, Rick... much appreciated!

    My dragon has stayed young for ever, while I grow old... Dumb Dragon... But that's OK cause he can't do anything without me... Get it? Without my imagination where would he be?... He'd probably be flying North to visit you... Aren't you lucky I'm here to save the day! ... Long live me! LOL... (Now isn't that the dumbest thing you ever heard?)
