A pic from a day out with my dear friend, [livejournal.com profile] tweedle_ taken by Rich, I think. We must have had a bit of Summer, somewhere for the flowers to bloom. :D

I read this today. I had to share. It's by someone called Edward Tuck - God bless him!

Age is a quality of mind -
If you've left your Dreams behind,
If Hope is cold;
If you no longer look ahead,
If your ambition's fires are dead -
Then you are old.

But if from Life you take the best,
If in Life you keep the zest,
If Love you hold;
No matter how the years go by,
No matter how the birthdays fly -
You are not old.

Then I will never be old. I shall wear my red shoes with pride - and if I find a purple hat, I will buy it!!!

Today is Pass on a Poem Day. Who said so? ME! If you have a nice poem, a sad poem, a love poem, a funny poem, a thoughtful poem, that you like - just post it here.

This is mine. It was one of the first I ever learned off by heart. I've loved it ever since. It's by Leigh Hunt.

I have no idea if you'll be interested so, if you don't think poetry is your cup of tea, you can skip it with my blessing, as it's one of mine - it's not a long one. Giggles.
