Below is the poem of the day entitled A Young Man to an Older Woman which was written by poet Andrea Dietrich.


A Young Man to an Older Woman

Dear, you keep telling me that you’re too old,
giving me reasons we should be apart.
But all these things I’ve already been told!
Please, darling, hear me now with your heart.
You say they’ll gossip about me and you.
Just let them! I’m young, but I’ve known
so many women, but not one can do
the magic YOU do. My wild oats are sown!
Never more will I be looking around.
You fuss over wrinkles, but all I see
is our connection so sweet and profound.
Always beside me, my angel you’ll be.
Age doesn’t matter when you’re in love, so
say yes to “us” and let’s give it a go!

Age is just a number. When two kindred spirits meet it is a delight. I am 62 - I still remember thinking the year 2000 was so far away! Nice romantic piece! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

Yep, I am 62 too. Can you believe we are over the halfway mark of a century for our age?

I find it humorous too, like if it were a 20 year old man with 60 year old woman or vice versa, but you know me, I'm doing a contest, ya know? (If I were free, I'd be fine with a 40 year old heehee!!!)

Hi Andrea, This is a good "Sonnet" for the contest theme. I agree age doesn't matter when you're in love as long as both parties are the consenting age. I wish you the best of luck in the contest:-) Alexis
