For Young and Old


		               

	The gray-haired feel as blessed on sunny days
	as those as yet untouched by Time’s harsh ways.

	Spring rains transform the earth from brown to green
	for young and old and all those in-between.
	
	Like nature, love is powerful. Its part
	in every life thrives deep within the heart.
			
	Romance exists not only for the young.
	Love’s words don’t fall just from the youthful tongue.

	The seasoned love can be as strong and sweet,
	though stimulated less by passion’s heat.

	The rose is sweet in smooth or wrinkled hand,
	as is the worn or shiny wedding band.
