Travis Albano


Old Man


Old man old man, you look so frail.
I am but I am healthy
I work in the fields all day
And I love my wife very much.

Young man young man, you look so fit.
I am not
I smoke cigarettes and weed and drink to much.
I can't run or climb trees like I used to.

Little boy little boy, you look so happy.
I am
today is my mother's birthday and
I have drawn her a picture.
She too will be happy.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
