Changing with Age

          Frolicking in the grass
          grinning, laughing, enjoying,
          the body, the ability to move,
          the friendship in playing

          Frolicking on the grass,
          Eyes shining
          Who cares about grass stains
          Incredible fun
          feeling your body next to
          mine, tickling, screaming
          loud laughter, eyes watering
          The smell of you, your hair
          your hands

          Frolicking in the grass
          years later, wanting to frolic
          say you are too old
          are you, am I?

We are only as 'old' as we let ourselves be!
Great poem, Teresa!

Age is but a state of mind...that's my motto....probably why my 16 year old son is forever telling me to act my age...lol

Wonderful poem, my friend!  I'm also a kid at heart - had a squealing contest with my 8-month-old daughter yesterday that made me hoarse.  So, I can relate...

I love the idea of this, and age changing things, but one should never be to old to frolic...somewhere.
