YOUNG AT HEART:

YOUNG AT HEART:
No doubt you'll know I'm young at heart,
And am Old or young as I feel.
Yesterday the "Green fingered Man",
Made this young heart reel.

He implied at my age,
Not to forget him in my will.
Also some unmentionable things,
How old I suddenly did feel.

He really got me thinking,
About certain aspects of life.
By the end of the day
Was feeling the effects of strife.

But after all is said and done
Our age we cannot alter.
But how we live our lives,
Is our own making....so I will not falter.

I awoken this morning to my usual self.
Went for my moring walk.
It's very very warm outside,
And saw the usual people to talk.

With the week-end fast approaching,
I have a treat in store.
Danny Boy has a new CD in the shops,
So won't have time to be a bore.

Enjoy your week-end everyone.
Whatever your age may be.
Being "Young at Heart"
Has it's advantages you see.

  2. That's a sobering reminder. But it doesn't matter the years if we keep a youthful spirit.

  4. I wonder if people like this man ever think before speaking? But he did encourage you to write a poem, and I loved the line, "Am old or young as I feel."

    1. I don't think he realised what he said or about my West Country accent which also hurt me.
      Thanks Lee for the comment much appreciated.

  5. I'm not feeling very young this week. It's so cold and windy I want to huddle in a blanket with a cup of hot tea and read a book.

    1. Best place is indoors with weather like that and do exactly what you wanted to do Susan.
