We Never Are Too Old - Poem by Francis Duggan

We never are too old for to stop learning and from life we learn a lesson every day
And it does not mean that you have to stop learning even though you have grown old and tired and gray
And those who think they know it all know little they go through life as blinkered one might say
The more we know the less we know we do know that's life and life has always been this way,
We never are too old for to stop learning and knowledge is the great food of the soul
And though we age and we become less lucid and time on our ageing memory taking toll
We still have lessons for to learn from living though some grow older but they don't grow wise
You will find wisdom amongst quite young children the wisdom of the young it can surprise,
We never are too old for to start learning when it comes to learning no such a thing as too old
You learn something new in every story even stories that so often have been told
On our life's journey we never stop learning and we keep on learning till our very end
The book of life the greatest book unwritten and the book of life is to everyone a friend
And we never are too old for to stop learning that's how it is and that's how 'twill always be
And that ought to apply to everybody and that applies to you as well as me.
