Old Poets

Rating: 3.1
(For Robert Cortez Holliday)

If I should live in a forest
And sleep underneath a tree,
No grove of impudent saplings
Would make a home for me.

I'd go where the old oaks gather,
Serene and good and strong,
And they would not sigh and tremble
And vex me with a song.

does it really matter what the young poets does or is it the end of art and speculations of boredom?

Ms. Kilmer this exquisite piece reads so true of today. The now and the nostalgia overwhelms. Thank you. Would that you were still amongst us more than in spirit, your sense of humor would indeed enjoy james b. earley's poem AN OLD CODGER ROSE AND MADE HIS WAY.....old men are the bomb. Kash Earley
