    No matter how old you are getting always stay young at heart. Strictland Gillilan has a way with words that he uses in this poem that will make you smile!
  1. Keep Young At Heart
    Poet: Strickland Gillilan

    But young at heart - God keep us that! Let care be laughed to scorn.
    Let's keep our backs to eventide and always face the morn.
    Let's keep the ripeness of our noon to guide the girls and boys
    Whose youth is callower than ours and lacking deeper joys.

    The snow of age may dust our hair, it cannot reach within.
    We'll teach those careworn youths of ours to bear their griefs and grin -
    Go to the one whose empty life has palled on him and say:
    "A wiser youth has come to me while you were turning gray."

  2. This poem makes fun of growing old, it points out things that happen to everyone, but in the end the message is enjoy and just live life!
  3. Aging is Fun
    Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

    Aging fun
    Growing old is,
    Lots of fun,
    Allow me to share,
    The obvious pun.

    Of course this fun,
    Is not the truth,
    Is aging all that,
    Fun to you?

    Baldness, greying,
    Wrinkles, and more.
    Is not my idea of
    Aging galore.

    But maybe things will be different for you.
    Do not let the stress of age
    Make you blue
    Live life, be engaged!

  5. Old
    By Catherine Pulsifer, © 2011

    I'm too young to be this old
    It is like catching a cold
    It happens before you know
    The years fly by and then you're old.

    But life is to be live each day
    Never stop learning
    Keep busy
    Find a laugh
    And life will be the best.

    A short but to the point poem about getting older!
  7. Older We Get
    By: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2011

    The older we get
    The more we forget
    But who cares
    Only those who dare
    To have that facelift
    And then be miffed!

  8. A cute poem that uses wheels to describe how the years go by.
  9. Seven Ages Of Wheels
    Poet Unknown

    A wicker carriage we provide
    In which the baby first may ride.

    With kilts, a yellow cart arrives,
    A doubtful billy-goat he drives.

    In knickerbockers, down the pike,
    He circuses upon his bike.

    The age of love and gasoline
    Demands a sixty-horse machine.

    The years advance; he rides afar
    In his palatial private car.

    Old, feeble, if the day be fair,
    His valet wheels him in the chair.

    Then one last trip he takes on wheels
    His head no higher than his heels.

  10. Not My Age
    Poet Unknown

    That’s not my age; it’s just not true.
    My heart is young; the time just flew.
    I’m staring at this strange old face,
    And someone else is in my place!

  11. Looking Back
    By Deacon Green

    If I were a boy again, — ah, me! —
    How very, very good I'd be!
    I would not sulk, I would not cry,
    I'd scorn to coax for cake or pie.
    I would not cause Mamma distress,
    I'd never hate to wash and dress.
    I'd rather learn a task than play,
    And ne’er from school I'd run away.
    I'd any time my jack-knife lend,
    And share my toys with every friend.
    I'd gladly go to bed at six,
    And never be “as cross as sticks."
    I'd run with joy to take a pill,
    And mustard wear whenever ill.
    I'd never wish to skate or swim,
    But wisely think of dangers grim.
    And, oh, I'd never, just for fun,
    Beg to go hunting with a gun!
    At every naughty thing I did —
    For mischief might be somewhere hid —
    I'd drop at once upon my knees,
    And say, “Dear Teacher, flog me, please."

    It’s easy to be good, you see,
    When looking back from sixty-three.

  12. Snap, Crackle, Pop
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    I feel like snap, crackle, pop
    I wish my age would just stop

    I bend down and my knees do snap
    Makes me feel like my legs will flap
    Then my arthritis makes me crackle
    I wonder what next I can tackle
    And if I turn too fast I hear "pop"
    My neck makes this noise like an old mop.

    But let me tell you it's okay
    A snap, a crackle, a pop, lets me know I am not decay
    There is still some life in these old bones
    I won't waste it with complaints and groans
    And I am not going to shrivel up and die
    If someone asks my age I will just lie!
