What Fifty Said by Robert Frost

When I was young my teachers were the old.
I gave up fire for form till I was cold.

I suffered like a metal being cast.
I went to school to age to learn the past.

Now I am old my teachers are the young.
What can’t be molded must be cracked and sprung.
I strain at lessons fit to start a suture.
I go to school to youth to learn the future.

  1. Thank you, Cherie. I have not read a lot of Robert Frost, but it was nice with this small reminder.
