growing old

                 The day when I was a younger Lass
                  never a thought in my young mind
                  soon evolution takes over
                  I try with grace and truth
                  overcome destiny
                  trading beauty
                  for wisdom
                  the gift
                  wise.

    Stunning write, Yvette. Nonet is a very difficult form but you make it look easy with this write. I've only ever attempted one and that took some doing!! Well done, my friend, and good luck in the contest. Licia :-)
