20 Funny Birthday Poems About Old Age

Share these funny birthday poems about old age with someone who is old in years but not in mind. The verses are sure to bring a smile to their face.

Age is just a number, you are only old if you think you are old. There are many who have said this. For example, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. said, "To be seventy years young is sometimes far more cheerful and hopeful than to be forty years old," and Dorothy Thompson said, "Age is not measured by years. Nature does not equally distribute energy. Some people are born old and tired while others are going strong at seventy." So while the poems are funny never think of old age as a number!!

  1. Old Age
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2020

    Old age you say
    Happens in just a day
    One minute you're fine
    And then you start to decline.

    They say you're over the hill
    That you have had your fill
    That life holds no more thrills
    You end up taking more pills.

    It sneaks up on you that old age
    They say it is a life stage
    Where did the years go
    You have only wrinkles to show.

    Forget all that stuff
    It really is just fluff
    It is just a number
    It does not mean slumber.

    You are still full of life
    You take all things in strife
    Forget about old age
    It is just another page.

    Keep that smile
    Keep going the mile
    You're young at heart
    Even if you have more farts.

  3. Happy Birthday Don't Be Blue
    Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2011

    Happy birthday to you,
    We know you feel blue.
    It's time to get over it . . . .
    There's nothing you can do!

    We all eventually get old,
    And it all feels foretold.
    But aging can be good . . . .
    Just take a look at mold!

    So what if wrinkles come,
    And your mind often feels dumb.
    Don't worry about the hair loss . . . .
    Your head will soon feel numb.

    All joking aside,
    We now must abide,
    And sing happy birthday to you. . . . .
    We all must now hide!

  5. Another Year, Another Ache
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Another year, another ache,
    Your body's starting to bellyache,
    Could it be your back or knee?
    You're getting old, I can see.

    Every year, it's something new,
    But you soldier on and push through,
    Aches and pains don't bring you down,
    You keep smiling, never frown.

  6. The Good Old Days
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    You tell me about the good old days
    Things were different in many ways.
    I can't imagine no cell phone or tv
    Life would be awful for me.
    But you say the "good old days"
    Really, "good", is that what you say?

    Grandma, the changes you have seen!
    In your days, I would not want to be a teen.
    No washing machine, no dishwasher
    Oh, Grandma what a disaster.
    I am glad things have changed for me
    The good old days, how terrible it would be.

  8. I Remember
    Poet: J. S. Ogilvie

    When the name that I write here is dim on the page,
    And the leaves of your album are yellow with age.
    Still think of me kindly, and do not forget
    That, wherever I am, I remember you yet.

  10. Old Age
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest

    I used to think that growing old was reckoned just in years,
    But who can name the very date when weariness appears?
    I find no stated time when man, obedient to a law,
    Must settle in an easy chair and from the world withdraw.
    Old Age is rather curious, or so it seems to me.
    I know old men at forty and young men at seventy-three.

    I'm done with counting life by years or temples turning gray.
    No man is old who wakes with joy to greet another day.
    What if the body cannot dance with youth's elastic spring?
    There's many a vibrant interest to which the mind can cling.
    'Tis in the spirit Age must dwell, or this would never be:
    I know old men at forty and young men at seventy-three.

    Some men keep all their friendships warm,
    and welcome friendships new,
    They have no time to sit and mourn the things they used to do.
    This changing world they greet with joy and never bow to late;
    On every fresh adventure they set out with hearts elate
    From chilling fear and bitter dread they keep their spirits free
    While some seem old at forty they stay young at seventy-three.

    So much to do, so much to learn, so much in which to share!
    With twinkling eyes and minds alert some brave both time and care.
    And this I've learned from other men, that only they are old
    Who think with something that has passed the tale of life is told.
    For Age is not alone of time, or we should never see
    Men old and bent at forty and men young at seventy-three.

  11. You May Wish
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    You may wish you could turn back the clock
    The age you are turning is a shock
    Years go flying by it seems
    "I'm not old", you always scream.

    This birthday poem is just for you
    Although you are older don't be blue
    Remember during this life stage
    You can pretend and be any age!

  12. One must either die or get old. George Eliot

  13. Preserve Your Old Age
    Poet: J. S. Ogilvie

    May beauty and truth.
    Keep you in youth;
    Green tea and sage.
    Preserve your old age.

  14. Old Age You Say
    Poet: Kate Summers

    What is old age you say?
    Is it when you are wrinkled and gray?
    Is it when your days are all sunny
    Or is it when life is just funny?

    For many, old age is a friend
    It doesn't mean life is at an end
    Get up and dance and sing a tune
    Don't sit and be a prune.

    There are ups and downs each day
    No matter what your age I say
    So tip your hat and be merry
    If you please have a glass of sherry.

  15. No one remembers when he was born, consequently we never know when we have grown old. Henry W. Longfellow

  16. You're A Living Legend
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    You're a shining example, oh so bold,
    Refusing to be told you're too old,
    Logic may say it's time to retire,
    But you're still rocking life with unwavering fire.

    Happy birthday to you, the eternal youth,
    Laughing in the face of age, that's the truth.
    So keep on enjoying, defying the norm,
    You're a living legend, breaking every form.

  17. Advantage of Old Age
    by Sir Thomas Bernard

    Uncertainty as to life is
    Not peculiar to old age.
    The young and the active are
    Even more liable to fatal accidents
    And violent diseases than the aged;
    And if the postponement of death
    Be an advantage,
    Age has already obtained it.

  18. Part of life is getting older. It starts the moment we are born! You may also enjoy our collection of funny poems about life

  19. I Know
    by Catherine Pulsifer

    Another birthday that is funny
    I never realized old could be so
    I won't tell anyone your age or name
    But oh I know, I know!

  20. What Is Old
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Oh, what is old? Let me ponder upon this quest,
    40, 50, 60 or even 70, who knows best?
    Does youth depart as silver strands multiply?
    Or wisdom dawn as creaking joints amplify?

    40, the years lie ahead, full of promise and zest,
    50 brings memories to treasure and penance to digest,
    60 whispers of wisdom, wrinkles etched with pride,
    And at 70, we scoff, for age is just a humorous tide.

    So let us embrace each number with laughter and glee,
    For getting older means a lifetime of stories set free.
