Poem: Poem at Forty

Updated on May 31, 2010

 The "Two score" finale

As I approach in mind
With lived and learned soul
The out-lived and the longing,
Every lost and conquered goal

Memories of yesteryear
The innocence, the tears
Those carefree times and wall clock
Chimes ringing in and out the years

Childhood days seem far now
And what was is now no more
And at times they're made young
Again by a creaking old wood floor
