An amusing poem, written one day on a whim.

We're not ready yet
For "On Golden Pond"
Too late for "Blue Lagoon"

The midlife years
So perfect now
With harmony
We're in tune

So follow me and
Don't look back;
Our future lies ahead..

We'll not grow old,
No never old
Our love will
Will grow young instead.

I liked this very much Joy! I am not growing older but younger too. I spent my summer with my kids asking questions about my going to a waterpark close by every weekend. I asked myself each time I went, why did I give up this wonderful water experience when I loved it so much in my youth? It made me younger in my spirit and soul and now I seek out the things I liked when I was younger and feel so much better for the change in me. I like growing younger!

Great read!

Joy, So far, I've only read 5 of the 8 poems you've posted, but this is my favorite to this point. I like what I'm seeing and I'll be checking out the rest of them soon.

Nicely done, Dick

PS: Thanks for the review of my recent poem, A NEW BEGINNING. Just now returned from a 1 week cruise and read it a few minutes ago. Comments from accomplished poets such as you always warm me.
