Women Writers in Literary History A to Z (Indiglo version) (Photo credit: juliejordanscott)

There once was a poet that yearned
To speak of the fires that burned
Within an old heart
But where would she start
To tell of the lessons she’s learned?

The wisdom of life and of age
Could tell such a tale on the page
And yet all we see
In this rhyme’s brevity
Is the passing of simply one stage

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Isn’t in the simplicity of life that we understand, the older you get the more ‘wisdom’ we acquire, but often it is a simple word that suffices.Well said and expressed Helen, I do like this one, I can see an engaging philosophical discussion coming from your words.

    If anyone can tell the tales, it’s you. 🙂 🙂 Great poem!

    Great poem Helen. The wisdom we acquire with age, so wonderful as long as we share it with those younger people. 🙂

  4. They should add this to Mother Goose. 🙂
