Old Is Beautiful.

As we walked by Our River,

My lover and I

A young lady pushing a pram

Walked towards us.

My lover looked at the baby

Then said to me,

“Is there anything more beautiful than a baby?”

I looked at her with a loving smile and replied,

“Yes there is, you”

“Me!” she said,

“Yes” I said “Babies are beautiful,

But that is natural for them.

Beautiful old people are works of art

And I am looking at a beautiful artwork

Every time I look at you.
