A Poem About People

While on the subject of great grandma,

let me share another few;

Though many were writ ages back

some reemerge as new.

And why might they be worth a read?

Because they still ring true!

To Be Old

This, then, is to be old: To take

out once again the dreams that long

and long were cherished, and to find

desire of them still sweet and strong;

But realizing now in peace,

or bitterness, that no endeavor

can bring them true; to lay them by,

knowing, this time, it is forever.
