“ Growing Up Later ” ~ beats sooner ~

 

Growing up later

Beats doing so sooner,

As older comes fast

When living in haste,

As venturesome past

May well deny taste,

On growing up late …

 

Growing up sooner

Exacts little light     

And thus I defer

To aging foresight…

 

Thence if but a day

For journey’s delay,                                                                           

I’ll suffer the loss,

At whatever cost

For all I can skewer,

Of growing up later!
