WINTER DREAMS


MANY WINTERS by Nancy Wood

If I had known before, all the things I know today,

I would have begun my life as an old woman.

Tricked by old men telling me there was nothing to fear

Except leaving my youth behind.

What would have been the fun of that?

What home would my mistakes have had?

It is better this way.

Now I can wish for my youth to come back.

Just so I can tell it, how old age is nothing buy

Remembering how rich the green fields looked

Despite the lack of rain.

  1. A beautiful poem: spare, and filled with the wisdom of experience. It doesn’t surprise me at all that you’d favor it enough to share it — I very much like it, myself.
