Late in springtime

Late in springtime

A Poem by Gee
"

As life draws to an end.....

"
Now long his shadow 'cross the ground
weak the winter sun,
that sets upon a life well lived,
four score years since begun.

Would springtime greet him one more time
as an old friend at a gate,
he smiled, resigned, knowing well,
not next year, he'd be late..........

Good morning Julie, thank you. Hope you are well
It's a perfect length, and the consistency of the rhyme scheme is absolutely lovely. An amazingly vivid image for such a brief piece.

Thank you Bell, glad you enjoyed the read.
Most lives tend to be just that, too short before the grave.

I took maybe too dark a meaning from this... but, that's my business. This puppy seems pretty fatalistic regardless of my take anyway.

(i love poems of this nature)

Nice write , no, not too short Gee, You said what you had to say, very well. My mother in law is 100 In a months time, People base so much importance on age. I am seventy six and I am in great health. but if I Kick the bucket real soon Then I am ready for my demise. It hardly matters we die when we are destined to die. My mo in law is much more dead than alive. If I were her I would be glad to float off. I enjoyed your words, my friend....Peter
