The religious man
may have a questionable retirement plan
his devout faith in God
O, let me be alone a while,
No human form is nigh.
And may I sing and muse aloud,
No mortal ear is by.
Fresh fields and woods! the Earth's fair face,
God's foot-stool, and man's dwelling-place.
I ask not why the first Believer
Did love to be a country liver?
Retire man, so what!
’Tis just a natural thing
That many tend to do.
Low was our pretty Cot : our tallest Rose
Peep'd at the chamber-window. We could hear
At silent noon, and eve, and early morn,
The Sea's faint murmur. In the open air
My gentle friend! I hold no creed so false
As that which dares to teach that we are born
For battle only, and that in this life
The soul, if it would burn with starlike power,
Retirement is the end of work,
That's what some seem to say,
But I have talked to many more,
Who say it's not that way.
After thirty years the day of decision has come
It is time to consider quitting and reducing stress
You fear you will be bored and have the doldrums
Time to slow the rapid pace and go out for recess.
From the dire monument of thy black roome,
Wher now that vestal flame thou dost intombe,
As in the inmost cell of all earths wombe.
Hail sacred shades! cool, leavy House!
Chaste treasurer of all my vows,
And wealth! on whose soft bosom laid
My love's fair steps I first betrayed:
In life i cross bridges when the time comes
At the moment i just want to live my life
Spend the last years of my retirement with my wife
Not to worry about things i have no control over like death.
Life's Fading Rodeo?
While I'm glad of your retirement from less fruitful goals you've chased,
still, the big sky's grown some smaller by concerns (and verse displaced?) .

Before retirement most works hard,
Have no time to be sick, playing the part.
But after retirement many slow down
Resting more, no purpose, just hoping to have more fun.
Retirement's the time to leave
Some things you did for long;
And do those things you couldn't find time,
And sing your lifetime's song!
Happy Teacher's Day
Indeed, a day worthy for treasure
As a moment of extreme pleasure.
Listening to footsteps and expecting
Without holidays, rest and relaxation, one cannot work well
In this mechanical machine like modern material world sure;
Life goes on so sans natural thinking, feeling and deciding
According to one's desire, dream and vision one loves most!
It brought a lot of tension.
When she tried to take all his retirement pension.
He was her sugar daddy and she was his young hot babe.
She took advantage of his memory which was beginning to fade.
The roadways of life he has been up and down
The travel worn old bloke from the far away town
He does not know if he has fathered children since he never had a long term partner or wife
Though he has had many women in his life
