OLD AGE

OLD AGE

When nepenthe dims the years
One seeks tender memories

More and more out-of-body –
Sweet absent hours without fear –

Prized moments come one-by-one,	
Settle as in waking dreams,

And with each treasured twinkling
Pain is gone, we’re young again

    On your blog, you said that you weren't fancy. Well, you don't have to be fancy when you are this eloquent.

    Daver in answer to your last question to me, how to be up to date: watch lots of tv shows like American Idol or MTV. hahaha
