Like almost anything created

March 15, 2019

An Ovaries egg hosts the active sperm,

Life’s union formed; it begins to burn.

 

Born a bonny babe, cradled helplessly close;

cherish the beginning; the end we fear most.

 

Youth starts so slow, but ends so quick;

old age you’ll discover, mimics the wick.

 

Burnt out before you know what’s wrong,

then he or she has sung their song.

 

Like almost anything created,

is diminished or disintegrated.

 

 

             The original version:-

 

Youth starts so slow, but ends so quick.

Old age you’ll find is like a wick.

 

Burnt out before you know what’s wrong,

then he or she has sung their song.

 

Like almost anything created,

life is diminished or disintegrated.

 

 

 

                  Written in year 5 (age 10?)

                  At Tintinara Area school

 

                  Wrongly accused of plagiarism by Mr. Dorrien . .@#$%^&*(?)

                  who declared he had read my poem elsewhere?
