Love Story (6) (A Woman's Age Is A Top Secret)

There was a 26 year-old man,
who had an older girlfriend.
She said to him she was older than he about 5 year,
and for 2 years they were living together.

One day they had a big quarrel,
with a loud shout and yell,
and a lot of ' Go to hell.'
Since then, they were separated, sueing each other.
She said to police that he sent threatening message to her.
He denied the charge and at police station they encountered.

There at police station, he knew her real age,
to his surprise and rage,
she was 41 and exactly 15 years older than he.
Then he realized his great stupidity.
Maybe she was too good to conceal
about her true age which she never revealed.

A woman's true age is a top secret,
kept so private until her last breath.
But on her tomb-stone, a true age must be written,
so that to go to either heaven or hell, she must not be mistaken.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
