A Poem Of Joy In Old Age


A POEM OF JOY IN OLD AGE

A Poem of Joy in Old Age
Is a small poem
Of a single quiet perception.

The morning light
The smile of a small step-grandchild
A happy turn of phrase.

A flickering joy
The mouthful of a morsel
A walk to see trees and sky.

A child no longer young
Leaning over with a hug
Before yet another good-bye.
