Youth - Poem by Max Reif

Youth, my untried powers
and the crimson glow of dawn,

youth and its infinite horizon,

youth, when I looked forward to
infinite freedom and went
flying off cliffs,
and crashed

    Some young fledglings are going to fly...some flap and fall to the ground...then fly.
    That's what youth is all about. 'Mama, I got a bo-bo from the stove! ' 'That's because it's hot, dear. Learn anything today? ' Great good poem! xxElysabeth (Report) Reply

    Nothing like a fall to let you know where 'up' is. (Report) Reply

    And didn't we all crash... pretty much by definition of ageing. This is a piece to which every (ahem, older) reader can relate... grand, Max. The flow caries the message, and vice versa. t x (Report) Reply
