Andrew Shares A Poem In Shakespearean Sonnet Form for March 26th

andrew_2.jpg

The elderly are the seed of wisdom,

That grows only when watered with insight,

Planted in the understanding of kingdoms,

And must be grown with experience’s light.

 

The elderly are like withered flowers,

That still live from avoiding foolishness,

And knowledge to bring them life past their hours,

Once perished, their seeds being new youthfulness.

 

These seeds gain knowledge through experiment,

And wisdom through much trial and error,

Once flowered, they may be broken or bent,

But these wounds grow ever strong with god’s care.

 

With life comes death, and death comes life anew,

So think straight, those who hit the mark are few.
