Youth like summer brave,
Age like winter bare:
Youth is full of sports,
Age's breath is short,
Youth is nimble, Age is lame:

Age versus youth- we'd all rather be young than old. But I would rather hang out with young people- they put life back into life. Unfortunately, while young people enjoy my company- given a choice they probably would rather be with their buddies doing their own dumb things rather than listen to tales of dumb thing done in the past.

Great poets have no age, Thus You Are, forever young And the lyrics you have made Will for long time be remembered, With greatest pleasure, ever sung.
