Soon I’d be three scores and a dime
But surely that’s no crime
Just have to alter my paradigm
Find newer ways to spend my time!
 
Years ago, I’d walk eight miles or so
Now I can do a couple, walking slow
Every muscle would hurt, head to toe
Spent, exhausted, can’t take no mo’
 
Quite a savvy driver I used to be
Eighty miles an hour I fly, feeling free
But reflexes slower, I’d likely hit a tree
Or find myself in the bottom of the sea
 
When young, my memory’s photographic
Now all I remember, things photogenic
Still I know lyrics to my favorite music
If ever I forget those, it’ll be tragic!
 
Well, soon I’d be three scores and a dime
So I need newer ways to while the time
Maybe write tall tales in verses that rhyme
Brag about the days when in my prime!
 
Yes, it’s been a beautiful life after all
It’ll even be better as autumn leaves fall
And I’m preparing myself for winter’s call
Writing verses about things great and small!

Someone said "age is a matter of mind; if you don't mind it doesn't matter". But the gray matter between your ears do matter!

Very nice Vic, you're the same age as my husband, he'll be seventy this month. We're planing a surprise birthday party for him. Great age, may God bless you with many more years of life. Enjoyed this very much.

Thank you Charlotte. For liking this little ditty. It created quite a stir in my circle of friends. LOL

One thing about getting older, there is so much you can write about from experiences
in your life. You have a gift, keep writing!

Thank you Barb. You're right, we have tons of experiences and learned so many lessons (the hard way sometimes) - all we need is to transcribe them into words. You have a gift as well!

I am in between two prolific poets, Robert and you Brod, lucky in the same galaxy and time, 75. Like Jenifer said, "Fill those empty pages with verses uncensored." Not sure if I quoted her right ("uncensored"), I'll check. Sept decennie is a good decade!
Will see you and Robert and those near and around this age
beyond the next "dime". Like.

Thanks Brod. Actually, I got two more years to go before I hit 70, but I know how fast those years will go. At our age, the days fly by. Look it is already November and I am still not used to writing 2016 LOL

You are still a young man. If you were eight years older, you would be my age. I still feel young.
