382. Age 

About my birthday (which happened recently)…

Age is such a strange affair, 

It adds some ridges,

Takes some hair, 

Expands gut,

A triste affair,

Until you know it’s not. 

For age is but a body thing, 

And what we are is more than this, 

As age is just a body thing,

We are always young.
