    interesting. Now I read it as, you know, fevered Spring happened so quickly, Summer was almost swallowed up, and Autumn came! Nice read, thanks again.

    Well, it isn’t a race. You don’t have to run to the finish line. Maybe a nice mosey, with stops to smell the posies. At three score and ten then three again I would hope that still the bursting of autumn’s color would merit pause and wonder. I’ll let you know if it holds for me in one score less one.

    Limping to the finish line, hoping ones life was worth something.

    Reflections in a pool of memories, ripples from the latest stone.

    Who threw it and what gives them the right?

    Lovely poem, Johntee, but all I could think was don't try to make time go by too fast. Take time to task and enjoy the now.

    The flowered heads, the dappling of color

    Sprung up from their beds

    Such tender budding treads

    Parading with the others

    What cause to keep

    What pause to weep

    Should autumn make them shudder

    The shadows long

    That stem the strong

    Each conviction breeds another

    Every read is different,
    your read is as valid
    as my intended reference
    to the first line
    "The flux of youth"
    coupling with "forgetful Autumn"
    as unspoken old age.

    I enjoy your 'tone' with these pieces. The line breaks and clipped lines form such a distinct "feeling" -- It's "Sure" Poetry.

    I enjoyed.

    --Pondering on 'fevered Spring'... because that would be summer, then, right? --
