Though Ageing - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though ageing I'm fairly healthy fit and strong
And I feel happy I have lived this long
And though my best years long gone and old age near ahead
Some I went to school with are amongst the dead
But memories of what was with me remain
And in fancy I visit the old fields again
When tadpoles are wriggling in the watery drain
And wildflowers bloom after showers of April rain
And in their breeding territories of Spring
The breeding male birds to proclaim their borders sing
I feel happy such things I can still recall
For I am getting older after all.
