Sounds Like Fatherly Advise.

I enjoyed this piece so very much. You always have such a way with words.
Your rhythm and rhyme were both in great sync.

Keep up the great work!
Thanks

By gosh, Jaybird, YOU got this poem just right! It flows along pleasantly, and your excellent rhyming is unforced.

I can't see how anyone could take issue with any of those common sense observations.

I especially like the lines, 'maybe you'll find a way to rip that page right from
your book. Like your poem, it takes awhile to appreciate the wisdom of those
we have known who were tested. Your poems make me want to go and find a rhyme myself, an inspiration.

Loved this poem with good rhyming and words of wisdom for sure. Sounds exactly how life goes, and for sure things change as the years go by and old age sets in.

Thank you for sharing your friend's wisdom in these rhymed, rhythmic quatrains. I admired your "speeding horse" metaphor and repeat of the conversational title for emphasis. Smiles- Joan

As we age it become more apparent to us that those friends who gave us sage advise, were really right all along. Now at almost 80 years, I am finding I am repeating the advise that I got long ago. Patricia

Important tips all around. So many possible applications as well. But what I like most is the catchy rhythm you've put together. Well done.

It is so good to see you posting - welcome back. I enjoyed your friend's advice about life. It certainly does seem to speed up. I had a reality check this week, and my spiritual age is way behind my chronological age!! You still are admired on FS,so let us read your poetry
More often.
