THE GEM 26 MAY 2017 : The follies of youth are food for repentance in old age. 

I’m an old woman now and nature is cruel-Tis her jest to make old age look like a fool.The body is crumbled, grace and vigor depart,There is now a stone where I once had a heart,But inside this old carcass, a young girl still dwells,And now and again my battered heart swells,I remember the joy, I remember the pain,And I’m loving and living life over again.I think of the years all too few- gone too fast.
