    ! Old Age Remembered

    I never thought it would happen to me…
    so, I wouldn’t have been reading this poem…

    but now it seems it has. And now
    I’m writing it. Or trying to. Big mistake?

    So do I have
    anything worth passing on?

    You know, the Polonius Balonyus stuff:
    If I were your age, boy,

    this is what I’d be and do, yawn zzzz….
    Let’s think instead, of some more lively head

    in Sunday supplement style –
    ‘Old Age – Tragedy or Comedy? ’

    It’s just so personal, and the only one
    to really weigh it up is you. Or me.

    I’m wiser, happier (on the happy days)
    than ever in my life; but then, who cares?

    Well, maybe one or two. On the other hand,
    there are few illusions left;

    would one have been glad
    to have no illusions, at, say, twenty years of age?

    Or, to be almost beyond pain, or pleasure,
    or attachments of any sort -

    this in some young man
    taking his vows as monk,

    would be a solemn commitment for a lifetime; but
    when you’re old – easier or harder then to bear?

    then, short-term memory shorter, long-term memory longer -
    that's wonderful - provided you have no regrets...

    the memories come flooding back
    of just how happy, happy childhood is...

    barely remembered now, how adolescence
    is the most painful time of life...

    To cut a long life-story short –
    the comedy’s more comic; the tragedy’s more tragic.

    So I wonder how Shakespeare, having studied both
    and then thrown his books away,

    living a comfortable (or was it?) Stratford retirement -
    a spot of bowls, a friendly pub,

    grandchildren, his or of his relatives,
    to keep him young or tire him out or both -

    I wonder what passed through his worldspanned mind
    as he passed passing time? As his time passed? read more »

    Stories Made Up

    A whole new ball game.

    The time had come for me to go and leave the world of work behind
    I was not sure, did not know how I would occupy my mind
    To fill the long hours of the day. I knew some things I’d like to try.
    But work had left small time for play and now there s was no reason why. read more »
