Quadrille: Forever Young

blue whippet in black coat in the forest

joy
distilled
among the trees
where we race
in the spirit
of fun

raise our smiles
to the morning sun
offering
the angel’s share
to the heavens

getting the balance
right
in casks of light
where love deepens
with age

souls stay
young
forever

  1. Lovely. I think our souls do stay young forever. I visit a nursing home and was talking to a lady who had just turned 100 and was bedridden. She told me “I don’t feel old.” and I knew exactly what she meant. Her body was worn out, but her spirit was still young.
