Amber Autumn (Sonnet) Poem by Connie Marcum Wong

Amber Autumn (Sonnet)

 


To some, their youth was just sublime.
Then age crept up and over time
Their joy then faded with the years
As body changes led to fears.

Their days are spent rememb’ring when...
They long to see their youth again.
For those whose youth was filled with strife,
Their autumn years are best in life.

Now their retirement Is here,
Old age is far from what they fear.
Time now to enjoy and savour
Their rewards for past times labour.

It’s time to spread their wings and fly,
To enjoy God’s gifts ‘fore they die.

Beautifully written. Enjoy all of your days to the fullest. Do the things that you enjoy doing. For life is short and can't be bought. Very inspiring.

Going by what you say in your poem, ....I want to add here that I've enjoyed my youth...and intent on enjoying the older autumnal years...and why not? ? On the bonus side, I can continue enjoying in Heaven....after this earth. So, its win-win all the way..! ! ! Thanks for your beautiful write.... Cheers. Subroto
