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.

    A fine write Gold.
    Yes, this psychological stuff of 'Who am I?' etc. Dunno why all the fuss. The answer is 'Me!!' lol.
    Doh! a course got a bit patronising. It said 'People over 70 are considered old, can't learn much new stuff, become less intelligent'. Then described them as somewhat decrepit. Maybe someone young wrote the course?

      Age is but a number Orchi, it is what you feel inside which is important in our lives.


    • L. B. Mek

      in its essence
      almost as good as Spenser, in my uncultured
      yet steadfast opinion:
      'The sovereign beauty' by Edmund Spenser

        Thank you for your kind words Mek.

          Once after learning to accept the grace and lines of age a new journey begins and excites, the beauty of 'old' unfurls like a breeze that is neither harsh or still. Just right.

            So true CB, thank you.
