Age

Old things become antiques
Old books become valuable
Old values become golden
Old people become venerable
Old friends become trustworthy
Old cars become priceless
Old structures become landmarks
Old mores become outdated
Old wine becomes outrageous
Old shoes become comfortable
Old authors become enjoyable
Old habits become diehard
Old age becomes wrinkled
Old cheese becomes smelly
Old skin has to be cured
Old mare becomes a nag
Old wood burns well
Old fruit falls off the branch
Old trees becomes awesome
Old sites are national treasures
Old man is a thespian
Old woman is a grand dame
We become old when Father Time
Walks in step with Mother Nature
And our beauty turns inward!
Yet, truly Old is gold!
“You don’t stop laughing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop laughing.”
Michael Pritchard
