  1. And this popped immediately to mind –

    When I Was One-and-Twenty
    BY A. E. HOUSMAN

    When I was one-and-twenty
    I heard a wise man say,
    “Give crowns and pounds and guineas
    But not your heart away;
    Give pearls away and rubies
    But keep your fancy free.”
    But I was one-and-twenty,
    No use to talk to me.

    When I was one-and-twenty
    I heard him say again,
    “The heart out of the bosom
    Was never given in vain;
    ’Tis paid with sighs a plenty
    And sold for endless rue.”
    And I am two-and-twenty,
    And oh, ’tis true, ’tis true.

  2. Great post, Rory! And for some reason, I find this a wonderfully stimulating topic! 😊

    Thanks to Grace’s poem, I was reminded of the poem “Warning” by the English Poet, Jenny Joseph. It is my Mother’s favorite and when she turned 80 (she is now 98!), she started purchasing a new wardrobe of purple clothing for herself – beginning with a very large checked purple winter coat which she gave to me last year when I turned 80! 😄 As for myself, upon my 80th birthday, I decided 80 is just another number like any other. Being the determined Taurus personality I am, I also decided that I could just as easily focus my attention on rejuvenation as to focus on the aspects of aging. It’s much more fun, too! 😊

    Warning by Jenny Joseph

    When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
    With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
    And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
    And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
    I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
    And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
    And run my stick along the public railings
    And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
    I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
    And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
    And learn to spit.

    You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
    And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
    Or only bread and pickle for a week
    And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

    But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
    And pay our rent and not swear in the street
    And set a good example for the children.
    We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

    But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
    So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
    When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

    1. Ha ha – l love this poem Betty, l was so inspired by this poem, l had a design of a purple wearing witch created for a friend!

      Mm, reminds me l must put that design out again 🙂
