Higher! - Poem by Igor Balatsky

When I was a boy of seven,
I used to climb apple-trees.

When I was a lad of fifteen,
I used to walk on the roofs.

When I was a young man,
I used to conquer the peaks.

And now I'm a grey-haired cloud,
I'm going wherever I want.

    Hi, Maybe It means that grey-haired head is a super visa to get everywhere... but then for little boy the road over branch was independent way to height to the sky... very nice poem Igor,
