Age - Poem by prasanna kumari

old age is young age
under red red flame of forest
life not a wastage

young age is old age
not under yellow canopy of flowers
life a wastage

    old age is young age.... nice poem

    young age is old age
    with no more red rose
    no time to feel fragrance
    as it is lost chance

    Simple but very meaningful poem, it signifies the importance of life. It is not how long a person lives that counts but how he spend it.Thank you for sharing. It teaches a lesson. (Report)Reply
