    With age experience enables one to recognize purity of an object. Maybe innocent days are valuable, there is no difference between costume jewelry and precious. Nicely brought out in the poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    All that glitters is not gold....lovely. However many interpretations of this lovely poem can be given. Outer appearance is never true...goes with the human behavior too.. (Report) Reply

And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
