One of the finest works that I have read lately. Beautiful images. Such a romantic way of looking at old age. I love your line "is not sunset saved for last?" Personally, as someone in my sixties, I don't have quite your opinion of old age. I like yours better. It is lovely. You are a blessing and such a gifted writer.

    Yes, I guess my opinion or sight is a little weak, but I have decided to be stronger in being who I am, and now what I'm expected to be...try to find joy and happiness without thought of whether to give in to the stigma of aging. Time to break the trend. As less physical becomes a reality, let the mind compensate, let the senses once more come into play, and joy must also become a reality, for it is, for the most, mind over matter.
    Enjoy each day as much as you can.

    My best wishes.

    Your insight's not weak. It is beautiful. Who needs realism in poetry?

Stars for my Star ****** friend, R*G* S****TT***AAA***RRRRRR!

Yesterday, we had dreams of being older, what if's...now, empty
nester. I like the visions you have in things aging, butterflies forming
from caterpillars, sleeps. Beautiful butterflies, mature leaves and waking
of dawn. Yes, I'm sure Dorothy and Williams Wordsworth would be so
proud of your scenery paintings.

One has so much to look forward to if we stop to smell the roses, watch the butterfly and enjoy the moment. I like your music, seasons, alliterations
and thoughts of growing older with love. People are blessed to be married 50 years together. Some, super blessed to be married to their sweethearts with 70 years.

John and I are going on 30. Our daughters are in Colorado helping people and mountain climbing. Monica enjoys poetry. Annie will soon. She turned 20 on Saturday. I'm working on editing three novels. I have my daughters in the novels. Colorado is the setting. I hope that your sweet grandparents are close to you, RG. God bless you. We've known each other three years. You will always be in my heart and prayers, my poet friends. SMILE!!!

flylikeaneagle - nancy Beautiful poem, RG! *******************************

    It is difficult to edit one's own book, I wouldn't recommend it, but good you are doing it, then let somebody give it a once over after.
    So happy for you. Always family orientated.
    Wish I knew them all.
    Take care my good friend, you always bring the family close.
    My best wishes. Thank you for the neve ending support.
    My very best wishes.

-Very nice image.
-A well penned poem about
being older, RG.
-I like all the examples you use
to show that beautiful things, like
the rose or ring, are not dimmed with age:
"Is it age we see,
or of love bestowed?"
-I like the final verse very much
with the beautiful sentiment,
written as only you can.
-The finale is well stated, too:
"...she smiles
...Older."
-Note: I also like the new profile photo.

    You are very welcome for the stars and comments, RG. I look forward to your writing and reviews, too. I thought your ideas about aging were elegantly shown.

Hello RG
A beautiful poem on aging.
Age results in many things, some changes and some constants
The exterior may change, but the interior stays constant
and may, in fact, in grow with time.
So it is with all things.
Perhaps, poems are ageless, like this one.
Best wishes to you, my friend
RS

Its beautiful. All the comparisons are wonderful. Value does not change with age. Its hard to get old so keep writing beautiful poems that enhance and accentuate its beauty. Thank you, sir!

You timing of this poem is perfect. I have been wallowing in fear of old age the past few months and this opened my eyes to the joy and beauty it can offer. This is so lovely and, a I said, your timing couldn't be better. I am 72 and feel today I can view the years as true joy and see the beauty they hold. Thank you so much for sharing this gem with us.

    And this response brings me joy, especially from my favourite artist of rants.
    This is why we write ...to bring attention to. The rest is up to the reader.
    Thank you so much.
    Thank you for the six stars.

We tend to measure beauty by the measure of the face, the sveltness of the human form, the well rock-jawed, v-shaped muscled male, the statuesque female model. But I believe that beauty is way beyond what eyes beholds, wonderfully scribed RG, your normal high class offering, blessings, Roy
