Retiring To A College Town - Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

You can't go wrong retiring to a college town,
I did without any restrain,
Thinking of my exciting collegiate years,
My decision has not been in vain.

No matter what the issues may be,
The challenges of life are always new.
Still, I can recollect those youthful years
When I also was a challenger too.

And that is why living in a college town
I never forgetting the days of old.
For how can a retiree surrounded by youth
Grow passive, slow or cold?
