Young At Heart

Rating: 4.9

The thrill at gazing at the sea,
Waves thundering ‘gainst the rocks you stand,
Sensing the breeze on your face, swimming in the frothy waters–
In a while, collecting sea shells along the sandy beach;
At an age beyond eighty,
Is being truly young at heart.

When you want to dance and know not if your steps may fail and fall,
The Pop and Rap drives you mad; and beckons you
To get on the floor and rock and roll.

Carefree and undaunted ‘bout what the watchers think;

When you are truly young at heart, you find the beauty in all things and you marvel at the world. When you are young at heart you do stop and smell the flowers on the way. Your poem is a good reminder of what life really is about. Well written Roop! I thoroughly enjoyed it.

On the way to the picnic spot, hail a bullock cart, Sit on the carriage and wave at the vehicles pass. Stop to rock on a swing you see swaying from a tree, Put bright flowers on your head and pose for photographs, Without a care in the world and as free as a bird, Then you are truly young at heart! yes it is the young spirit that matters. at any age you can be wonderful in every sensual way. thank you for revealing your ideas and revealing your real you.

There is no perfect age and no perfect time. Perform hilarious things and play amusing pranks. Be happy and sunny and let Life bounce, Don’t miss this chance you have it - but once! .......these lines reveal that an old heart can't do every things whatever he or she wants but can do somethings easier and pleasant works like hilarious things, bouncing, playing with children or telling story to them etc. There is no need of perfect age or time. Whole poem is nicely depicted. A great poem........ 10

This is a great, reassuring poem for an old man like me. What a coincidence - it was only last night I watched on fb Late Anthony Quinn at age 84 redoing his Zorba Greek dance. Quinn started slow and then regaled. It was great to watch his mirth and steps. Thank you for keeping our spirits high. 10 no doubt, if not more.
