From Newbie to Bittervet

see beauty

i walked this path

when love was young

and buds about to spring –

colors bright, breezes soft

no want for anything.


there was a time

for boundless hope

and dreams of evermore.

now i wander aimlessly

my joints are getting sore.

where went this youth

these dreams and songs

that winged on words of love?

left with geese flocking south

chorus sounds above.

now the trail is sodden

with limp and trodden leaves;

gone the color and the spark.

trees and i are getting old

soon it will be dark.
