GUEST,MikeOfNorthumbria (sans cookie) Poems about Growing Old (85* d) RE: Poems about Growing Old 24 Mar 16


Some great stuff here - thanks to all the contributors.

And here's one of my favourites which seems to have escaped notice so far.

Jenny kiss'd me when we met
Jumping from the chair she sat in.
Time, you thief, who love to get
Sweets into your book, put that in!

Say I'm weary, say I'm sad,
Say that health and wealth have miss'd me,
Say I'm growing old, but add,
Jenny kiss'd me.

By Leigh Hunt (1784-1859)

Wassail!
